Abstract

Recently, a high speed binary-to-decimal conversion algorithm was introduced that repeatedly isolates bit segments (four bits) and uses the numeric value of each segment isolated as an index to one of the tables with pre-computed decimal values. The result is the sum of all decimal values extracted from the tables.
