ABSTRACT

A technique is presented for dividing a positive binary integer by ten, in which the bits of the input are presented serially, low-order bit first. A complete division by ten is performed in two word times (comparable to the time needed for two serial additions). The technique can be useful in serial conversions from binary to decimal, or in scaling binary numbers by powers of 10.

INDEX TERMS

Binary division, binary-to-decimal conversion, decimal floating point, serial arithmetic, serial division.
