Posted: 16 Jul 2007 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:FPGAs? floating-point math? double-precision floating-point?

Floating-point arithmetic is used extensively in many applications across multiple market segments. These applications often require a large number of calculations and are prevalent in financial analytics, bioinformatics, molecular dynamics, radar and seismic imaging, to name a few. Apart from integer and single-precision 32bit floating-point math, many applications demand higher precision, forcing the use of double-precision 64-bit operations. This paper demonstrates the double-precision floating-point performance of Altera FPGAs using two different approaches.
