Thread: 360 Degree Sine, Cosine and Arctangent

  1. #1

    360 Degree Sine, Cosine and Arctangent

    This shows the conversion of an angle in degrees to radians to Sine and Cosine to radians to degrees.
    The final answer is expressed by the FPU within +/- 180 degree range.

    By retaining sine and cosine data - the quadrant info is never lost, as happens with a tangent.
    Also, tangent infinity problems are avoided.

    Note that the FPU can produce the Sine and Cosine with a single instruction. FSINCOS

    Thanks Charles!,

    very nice and very fast again
    Are digits loaded by d9 eb the same on AMD/Intel/VIA, or can it happen some of them will provide just 3.1415 for (extreme ) example?

    As far as I know, the FPU instructions are the same for all Pentium-like processors.

    In fact there have been very few enhancements since the 8087 about 25 years ago. FSIN FCOS FSINCOS are more recent. Also in the original chip, the condition codes could not be passed directly to the EFLAGs register on the CPU - the new instructions for doing FPU comparisons are FCOMI FCOMIP FUCOMI and FUCOMIP allowing the CPU to make conditional jumps, immediately following these single instructions.
