Division is one of the four arithmetic operations that the authors frequently encounter in their daily life. It is of little surprise that, an efficient division algorithm can considerably improve the performance of the ALU component of any digital circuit. In other words, an efficient division algorithm is one of the main aims of a designer while implementing an ALU circuit. The algorithm presented in this paper, solves the problem of binary division, by the use of a successive approximation approach.
