A principal limitation in accuracy for scientific computation performed with floating-point arithmetic is due to the computation of repeated sums, such as those that arise in inner products. A systolic super summer of cellular design is proposed for the high-throughput performance of repeated sums of floating-point numbers. The apparatus receives pipelined inputs of streams of summands from one
