Abstract : Three approaches for computing sines and cosines on FPGAs are studied in this paper, with a focus of high-throughput pipelined architecture, and state-of-the-art implementation techniques. The first approach is the classical CORDIC iteration, for which we suggest a reduced iteration technique and fine optimizations in datapath width and latency. The second is an ad-hoc architecture specifically designed around trigonometric identities. The third uses a generic table- and DSP-based polynomial approximator. These three architectures are implemented and compared in the FloPoCo framework.
