An algorithm to convert redundant number representations into conventional representations is presented. The algorithm is performed concurrently with the digit-by-digit generation of redundant forms by schemes such as SRT division. It has a step delay roughly equivalent to the delay of a carry-save adder and simple implementation. The conversion scheme is applicable in arithmetic algorithms such as nonrestoring division, square root, and on-line operations in which redundantly represented results are generated in a digit-by-digit manner, from most significant to least significant.
