CORDIC is an algorithm that enables estimating the angle of a phasor (i.e. a complex number) from its real and imaginary parts. It operates by rotaing the phasor by a predfined sequence of angles (e.g. 180, 90, 45, 22.5 ...) and after each rotation checking if the phasor has crossed the 0 angle. Based on the the outcome of this test, the predefined angle is added to the estimate of the angle.

Hi !

CORDIC alghorithem is an interactive process to performe elementary arithmetic functions like sin, cos, arctg

You can find some docs here

“A survey of CORDIC algorithms for FPGA based computers,”

Good luck, Bart
