ECE 533 Computer Design Assignment 9

  1. Calculate (manually) the floating point representation of 1/7 and 1/9.

  2. Investigate how NiosII processes float arithmetic (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division) by writing an example C program and tracing its operation in a debugging session.

  3. Investigate how the MIPS32 system handles float arithmetic operations on the PIC32. I believe you will find actual floating-point hardware.
