With the current information I would say it takes as many cycles as it needsHello Friends.
Can any one tell me, Floating point operation takes how many clock cycles in computer.
On a general basis. A floating point operation is built up of one or more low level machine code instructions. A machine code instruction may take a number of clock cycles to finish. This number will be different among types of machine codes. But the number cycles each machine code instruction will be the same each time. The exception may be some jump on condition instructions. The data sheet will tell you how many clock cycles each machine code instruction take. So with this information you just add up how many cycles that are needed based the machine code instruction(s) used.I want to ask a FPU (floating point processing unit) takes how much clock cycle for a floating point operation.
