hi, I have to design a processor in VHDL which does various multiplications and divisions to find a result which is a real number. As it is a hand held low power device I decided to use fixed point arithmetic for all the arithmetic operations involved in the design of the processor. I would like to know the best way to design the low power processor in VHDL. How could I implement fixed point multiplication and division in VHDL? Can I use * operator? Or is it better to use some other algorithms for multiplications for low power processor? Any help in this issue is greatly appreciated. Thanks
