This paper presents a VLSI implementation of a unique 32-bit antilogarithmic converter, which generates data for some digital-signal-processing (DSP) applications. Novel antilogarithm correcting algorithms are developed and implemented with low-power and hardware-efficient correcting circuits. The VLSI implementations of these algorithms are much smaller than other hardware intensive algorithms found in the literature. The converter is implemented using 0.6 μm CMOS technology, and its combinational logic implementation requires 1500λ×2800λ of chip area. The 32-bit antilogarithmic converter computes the antilogarithm in a single clock cycle and runs at 100 MHz and consumes 81 mW.
