re: New decimal arithmetic IP library

My job is verification or calibration for measurement instruments, but My hobby is electronic instrument design. one time I had to design a microwave powermeter (only the basic instrument but not power sensors). This was the first time I read about microcontroler (89C51) and Assemly language (I didn't have any chance to study microcontroler before). Then, I had to spend so much time in programming (assembly) the arithmetic calculation for last results up to 48bits numbers. That why I wish there is a library of IP Cores implementing decimal floating-point algebraic operations, although I still do not now programming for the FPGA (I already bought the Xilinx Spartan-3E Starter kit for learning by myshelf). I thing if you need the high speed calculation, so you need a hardware calculation much more than you need software calculation. And please tell me where I can get the program moduls for the decimal floating-point for microcontrolers

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
