Paper Abstract

Adaptive signal processing presents extremely demanding requirements to current signal processing hardware. In this paper Signed-Digit arithmetic techniques are evaluated for applicability in adaptive signal processing architectures. It is shown that signed-digit arithmetic offers the advantage of parallelism in computation without the accompanying conversion problems of the residue arithmetic representation. A brief overview of the basic features of signed-digit arithmetic are presented with structures for addition and multiplication. It has been shown that these primitives can be used for matrix operations, including least-square minimization. In optical implementations of residue arithmetic architectures, look-up tables are generally used, which can also be used for a signed-digit implementation.
