floting point unit

Hi
I am trying to design a 32 bit FPU. I just want to know the number of functions that a FPU should support and also the functions.

Re: floting point unit

u have to decide whether it is Binary FPU or Hexadecimal FPU or Decimal FPU.. u can implement all 3 together also.. key functions are add, subtract, multiply, divide, square root, convert from Float to fixed point and vice versa
