Financial applications are one of many fields where a multivariate Gaussian random number generator plays a key role in performing computationally extensive simulations. Recent technological advances and today's requirements have led to the migration of the traditional software based multivariate Gaussian random number generator to a hardware based model. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) are normally used as a target device due to their fine grain parallelism and reconfigurability. As well as the ability to achieve designs with high throughput it is also desirable to produce designs with the flexibility to control the resource usage in order to meet given resource constraints.
