Abstract : BURSTCALC is an arithmetic calculator which accepts inputs in Burst format and produces their sum, difference, product and quotient in Burst format, too. It uses simple counting techniques on the incoming Bursts in order to compute the desired arithmetic operation with low precision, so that relatively simple and low cost circuitry is used. However, higher precisions can be achieved by averaging the result over longer periods.
