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
