New directions in computing and algorithms has lead to some new applications that have tolerance to imprecision. Although, These applications are creating large volumes of data which exceeds the capability of today's computing systems. Therefore, researchers are trying to find new techniques to alleviate this crisis. Approximate Computing is one promising technique that uses a trade off between precision and efficiency of computing. Acceleration is another solution that uses specialized logics
