Accurate Computation with POSIT unum – Zerif Technologies Ltd.

Beyond Floating Point – Accurate Computation with POSIT unum

VividSparks takes your computation power and efficiency beyond floating point to 2 or 3 decimal places more accuracy than single precision or double precision FP calculations.

VividSparks has developed a highly advanced implementation of the POSIT number system that gives 2 to 3 more decimal places accuracy over floating point computation, 32-bit and 64-bit respectively. This improved computational accuracy becomes exponential when calculations are iterative, or are input to a subsequent calculation.

Announcing the end of error, VividSparks has implemented POSIT as a soft IP core, a cloud service, or hardware components for commercial, industrial, and research applications.
