A hardware friendly rational function approximation evaluator
Abstract (in engleza):
In this talk we present an automatic method for the evaluation of functions via polynomial or rational approximations and its hardware implementation, on FPGAs.
These approximations are evaluated using Ercegovac’s iterative E-method adapted for FPGA implementation.
The polynomial and rational function coefficients are optimized so that they satisfy the constraints of the E-method.
We present several examples of practical interest; in each case a resource-efficient approximation is proposed and comparisons are made with alternative approaches.
