This paper presents a high-speed method for approximating reciprocals and square roots. This method is based on piecewise second-order Taylor expansion, yet it requires one third as many coefficients and has less delay. It can be implemented using a table lookup, a multiplication and a merged operation, which has approximately the same area and delay as a multiplication. The table lookup and merged operation are independent and can be performed in parallel. To reduce the overall hardware requirements, this method can share hardware with an existing multiplier.
