Özet

This paper presents a multi-precision floating-point adder that can perform a high-precision floating-point addition, or multiple low-precision floating-point additions in parallel. The proposed design eliminates time consuming format conversion operations when it is operating in low-precision modes. The proposed multi-precision floating-point adder has delay approximately equal to a standard double-precision floating-point adder.
