This paper considers translation problems in residue number systems. The conversion from a fixed-base representation to a residue representation can be done using residue adders only; we show that relatively simple combinational logic can be used to replace one level of residue addition. In the reverse translation problem, we examine the conditions under which base extension can be used to compute the fixed-base digits from a residue code number, and we study the efficiency of the algorithm.
