How to implement DSP operations

Hello,

I am quite new to FPGAs so forgive me if this is a blatant question. I need to implement a mathematical function ( a/ln( (b / (c - d)) +e ) ), where c is my input, the others are constants, and all the values are floating point. I have looked at the arithmetical libraries in quartus and it is possible with them, however I have seen at multiple places that using DSPs(which I understood as hardware mathematical blocks) is much faster and resource efficient. I have had a look at the Nios II Floating Point Hardware Component User Guide, but there it connects it to a Nios processor and I still am quite confused about how to set what instructions the module actually executes, I cannot really find where to set it in the parameters either. Am I interpreting the function of DSPs wrong or have I missed a user guide? I was planning to implement the part inside the logarithm inside a DSP, and the other parts with arithm blocks(as DSPs don't have a natural logarithm function). The input would be a continous data stream, so using components that would need a slower clock(and/or some ready-ack logic) to function overall instead of pipelining would not really suit me. Best regards, TiborLink Copied
