CS m51A: Logic Design of Digital Systems UCLA Computer Science Department Fall 2009 Project 2 – Large Digital System Design Due Friday, December 4, 2009 12:00 Noon Sharp Provide a schematic that implements the multiplication of two floating point values, and outputs the resulting product in normalized form. We will use a simplified floating-point representation consisting of one sign bit, a 3-bit exponent , and a 4-bit significand (also called the fraction or, somewhat inaccurately, the mantissa ): The value represented by an 8-bit byte in this format is V = (-1) s · M ·2 E The S bit signifies the sign of the number. The 4-bit significant M ranges from (0000) = 0 to (1111) = 15, and the exponent ranges from (000) = 0 to (111) = 7. The following table shows the values corresponding to several FP representations. The last two rows of the above table demonstrate that some numbers have multiple FP representations. The preferred representation is the one in which the most significant bit of

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
