Complex Square Root with Operand Prescaling

Abstract : We propose a radix-$r$ digit-recurrence algorithm for complex square-root. The operand is prescaled to allow the selection of square-root digits by rounding of the residual. This leads to a simple hardware implementation. Moreover, the use of digit recurrence approach allows correct rounding of the result. The algorithm, compatible with the complex division, and its design are described at a high-level. We also give rough comparisons of its latency and cost with respect to implementation based on standard floating-point instructions as used in software routines for complex square root.
