Multi-Mode Floating Point Multiplier With Parallel Operations

Most modern processors have hardware support for single precision and double precision floating point multiplication. For many scientific computations like climate modeling, computational physics and computational geometry this support is inadequate. They impose the use of quadruple precision arithmetic because it provides twice the precision of double precision format. The proposed design performs four single precision multiplications in parallel, or two double precision multiplications in parallel, or one quadruple precision multiplication. The throughput is increased by a factor of four for single precision multiplication and by two for double precision multiplication
