Abstract

A radix 4 division architecture is presented which partially overlaps the updating of the remainder with the digit selection procedure. It is obtained by separating the radix 4 digit selection process into two concurrent substeps. The proposed unit requires a simple selection table and involves a small extra expense for the additional hardware compared to the usual radix 4 division units. Four possible implementations are derived from the general model, with different types of substeps. The high level evaluation shows that the proposed architectures offer an efficient alternative
