Numerical function generators using LUT cascades

This paper proposes an architecture and a synthesis method for high-speed computation of fixed-point numerical functions such as trigonometric, logarithmic, sigmoidal, square root, and combinations of these functions. Our architecture is based on the lookup table (LUT) cascade, which results in a significant reduction in circuit complexity compared to traditional approaches. This is suitable for automatic synthesis and we show a synthesis method that converts a Matlab-like specification into an LUT cascade design. Experimental results show the efficiency of our approach as implemented on a field-programmable gate array (FPGA).
