In this article, we describe several techniques to reduce computational workload of the Newton-Raphson (NR)-based fixed-point square rooting method. Using the described techniques, the computational workload of NR methods can be reduced at the expense of memory. These new techniques outperform existing fixed-point square rooting methods both in terms of results accuracy and computational efficiency.
