|An Efficient Implementation Of Floating Point Multiplier|
|Authors:||ASIYA THAPASWIN PATTAN, V.RAMESH|
Abstract?Thispaper describes an efficient implementation of an IEEE 754 single precision floating point multiplier targeted for Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA. VHDL is used to implement a technology-independent pipelined design. The multiplier implementation handles the overflow and underflow cases. Rounding is not implemented to give more precision when using the multiplier in a multiply and Accumulate (MAC) unit. With latency of three clock cycles the design achieves 301 MFLOPs.The multiplier was verified against Xilinx floating point multiplier core.
