21st Century Slide Rules with Logarithmic Arithmetic
Design How-To  
2/6/2002   Post a comment
Using the Logarithmic Number System (LNS) as an alternative to fixed- and floating-point arithmetic reduces multiplication, division, and square root implementation while improving power and area. Mark G. Arnold of the University of Manchester discusses three forms of LNS along with a Verilog implementation of a linear-Lagrange interpolator targeted for an FPGA.
