A Simple Postcorrection for Nonrestoring Division
February 1971 (vol. 20 no. 2)
pp. 213-214
V.T. Rhyne, IEEE
The nonrestoring division algorithm offers the advantages of speed and logical simplicity when working with signed, two's-complement binary numbers. The algorithm does not assure sign agreement between the calculated quotient and remainder, however, which is a disadvantage in some applications. This paper describes a postcorrection that will force sign agreement between quotient and remainder. The corrective operation is very simple to implement, especially in microprogrammed arithmetic units.
Index Terms:
Binary division, complement, double precision.
