A modern special-purpose processor (e.g., for image and graphical applications) usually contains a set of instructions supporting complex multiply-operations. These instructions perform a variety of multiply-operations with various data bitwidths and concurrent-execution requirements. For instance, such an instruction set may include instructions to perform signed/unsigned 32X32, signed/unsigned dual 16X16, signed/unsigned 8X8 MAC, and etc. Typically, a co-processor or a complex MAC (Multiplier-ACcumulator) u…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
