Complex arithmetic is used just for solving diagonal linear systems and performing operations with vectors.
Moreover, order k > 1 approximations require the solution of a k-banded linear system in complex arithmetic per iteration, which can represent a not negligible computational cost if we have convergence in almost the same number of iterations of the underlying diagonal corrections.
The development of AIL's advanced power-conscious technologies requires the use of extremely complex arithmetic and data path cells specifically developed to meet the target established for each design or application.
SiliconSmart CR provides AIL the flexibility to characterize its most complex arithmetic and data path cells with near-linear increases in throughput with each additional CPU and the model quality required.
The powerful combination of the Quartus II design software and the Stratix device family deliver a significant performance improvement for designs with complex arithmetic functions when compared to prior generation devices," said Tim Southgate, Altera's vice president of software and tools marketing.
The mAgic core provides single-cycle execution of complex arithmetic operations, such as FFT butterflies and vector2 arithmetic.
Macros range from simple gates and flip-flops to complex arithmetic functions which can be easily incorporated into a Mentor Graphics schematic design.
According to Lin, datapath has always been a difficult challenge for equivalence checking due to the complexity of formally verifying complex arithmetic operators.
It uses module generation that automatically searches the HDL source code for complex arithmetic and data-path operators, and replaces them with handcrafted circuits that are pre-optimized for the target device.
The UltraGen(TM) synthesis technology in Warp software uses module generation that automatically searches HDL source code for complex arithmetic and datapath operators, and replaces them with handcrafted circuits already optimized for the target device.
UltraGen uses module generation that automatically searches VHDL source code for complex arithmetic and datapath operators and replaces it with a hand-crafted circuit optimized for the target device.
This new product builds on the production-proven first-generation Design VERIFYer software by adding full support for synthesizable Verilog RTL, an extended data representation for transistor-level circuits, and algorithm enhancements to verify complex arithmetic circuits.
To play back a note from an instrument selected by the MIDI command stream, the ES689 wavetable synthesizer selects stored samples from the selected instrument and performs complex arithmetic calculations before playing the note, including interpolation between sampled notes, pitch shifting, and filtering.
