For most digital
designs can you trade between area and speed:
A sequential n-bit divider
will use n-clock pulses in order to produces the result
(Quotient : Remainder)
On the other hand will a "true parallel" combinatorial
division-circuit typically use 3 to 10x times more logic.
The principle of a
sequentiel division can be found in textbooks and served as
background for the VHDL sources found at this page.
this site in order to study combinatorial division and get a
automatic generated VHDL source for n-bit division.
