In the last posts I focused on implementation of square root algorithm. I wrote codes for iterative and piplined versions. Today I wanted to compare them. Additionally for comparison I added two square root IPs (ALTSQRT) generated by Quartus. Primary goal is to answer to the following question: is it better to use IP core or write own square root calculator? I focused only on the used resources.Read More »Square Root. Part 3 – summary.
In a previous post I implemented an iterative version of a square root algorithm described in the article: “A New Non-Restoring Square Root Algorithm and Its VLSI Implementations” written by Yamin Li and Wanming Chu. Here I present the pipelined version from the same article.Read More »Square Root. Part 2 – pipelined version.
