# How do you do non-restoring division?

## How do you do non-restoring division?

Step 1: In this step, the corresponding value will be initialized to the registers, i.e., register A will contain value 0, register M will contain Divisor, register Q will contain Dividend, and N is used to specify the number of bits in dividend. Step 2: In this step, we will check the sign bit of A.

## How is division implemented in Verilog?

Then in your verilog you can implement your approximate divide by multiply (which is not too expensive on modern FPGAS) followed by shift (shifting by a fixed number of bits is essentially free in hardware). Make sure you allow enough bits for the intermediate result.

**What is restoring and non-restoring division?**

A division algorithm provides a quotient and a remainder when we divide two number. They are generally of two type slow algorithm and fast algorithm. Slow division algorithm are restoring, non-restoring, non-performing restoring, SRT algorithm and under fast comes Newton–Raphson and Goldschmidt.

### What is non-restoring method?

Now, here perform Non-Restoring division, it is less complex than the restoring one because simpler operation are involved i.e. addition and subtraction, also now restoring step is performed. In the method, rely on the sign bit of the register which initially contain zero named as A. Here is the flow chart given below.

### What will be the value of Q bit in non restore division method of accumulator contents are negative?

If the result is negative then the step is said to be “unsuccessful”. In this case, the quotient bit will be “0”.

**What is the advantage of non-restoring division algorithm?**

The advantage of using non-restoring arithmetic over the standard restoring division is that a test subtraction is not required; the sign bit determines whether an addition or subtraction is used. The disadvantage, though, is that an extra bit must be maintained in the partial remainder to keep track of the sign.

## What is restoring method of division algorithm?

In a division algorithm there is a quotient and a remainder when we divide two number. Here, n-bit dividend is loaded in Q and divisor is loaded in M. Value of Register is initially kept 0 and this is the register whose value is restored during iteration due to which it is named Restoring.

## Why is non-restoring division faster than restoring division?

You generally do a test subtraction for each digit step; if the result is positive or zero, you note down a 1 as next digit of your quotient. non-restoring method: you don’t do that – you keep negative remainder and a digit 1, and basically correct things by a supplementary addition afterwards.

**When QN and QN 1 01 then the action taken is?**

If the bits of Qn and Qn + 1 is shows to 01, the multiplicand bits (M) will be added to the AC (Accumulator register). After that, we perform the right shift operation to the AC and QR bits by 1.
