FPAU Floating Point Arithmetic Unit IP Core

General Description:

DFPAU IP Core uses the specialized algorithms to compute arithmetic functions. It supports addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root, comparison, absolute value, and change sign of a number. The input numbers format is according to IEEE-754 standard single precision real numbers. DFPAU is prepared to use with 8-, 16- and 32-bit processors. Trigonometric functions are supported indirectly, because they are computed as set of add, multiply and divide operations by software subroutines.
DFPAU is a technology independent design that can be implemented in a variety of process technologies.

Key Features:

  • Direct replacement for C float software functions such as: +, -, *, /,==, !=,>=, <=, <, >
  • C interface supplied for all popular compilers: GNU C/C++, 8051 compilers
  • No programming required
  • IEEE-754 Single precision real format support – float type
  • Flexible arguments and result registers location
  • Performs the following functions:
    • FADD, FSUB – addition, subtraction
    • FMUL, FDIV – multiplication, division
    • FSQRT – square root
    • FCHS, FABS – change of sign, absolute value
    • FXAM – examine input data
    • FUCOM – comparison
  • Exceptions built-in routines
  • Masks each exception indicator:
    • Precision lack PE
    • Underflow result UE
    • Overflow result OE
    • Invalid operand IE
    • Division by zero ZE
    • Denormal operand DE
  • Fully synthesizable
  • Static synchronous design
  • Positive edge clocking and no internal tri-states
  • Scan test ready

 

Applications:

  • Math coprocessors
  • DSP algorithms
  • Embedded arithmetic coprocessor
  • Fast data processing & control

Units

Align

It performs the numbers analyze against IEEE-754 standard compliance. Information about the data classes are passed as result to appro-priate internal module.

Exponent

It performs operations on exponent part of number. The addition, subtraction, shifting, comparison and conversion operations are executed in this module. It contains exponents and work registers.

Interface

It is an interface between external device and DFPAU internal 32-bit modules. It contains data, control and status registers. It can be configured to work with 8-, 16- and 32-bit processors.

1 - data bus can be configured as 8-, 16- or 32- bit depends on processor’s bus size
2 - address bus is aligned to work with 8- (3:0), 16- (3:1) or 32- (4:2) bit processors

Mantissa

It performs operations on mantissa part of number. The addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, square root, comparison and conversion operations are executed in this module. It contains mantissas and work registers.

Shifter

It performs mantissa shifting during normalization, denormalization operations. Information about shifted-out bits are stored for rounding process.

Control Unit

It manages execution of all instructions and internal operation required to execute particular function.
