The multiply-add-fused (MAF) operation is very important in many scientific and engineering applications. In this paper, a novel architecture for the MAF operation is presented. According to the fact that some steps of MAF operation are mutually exclusive, the composing steps are organized into two data-paths, and each data-path only contains the indispensable computation steps. One takes effect when the effective subtraction occurs, and the other takes effect when the effective subtractiondoi:10.1109/icics.2003.1292753 fatcat:gbrfpam47jfadis26u22j3i3ye
