A repeated application of nested multiplication by ten yields an extremely simple method for binary to binary-coded decimal (BCD) conversion where the input is a binary fraction. This technique can be implemented in a cellular array or in a serial system using an adder and storage register. The cellular array is, however, a faster method and can be implemented with available circuits.
Binary fractions, binary to BCD conversions, fully iterative arrays, universal arithmetic cells.
