We implement on Field Programmable Gate Arrays from Amtel (old CLi) three systolic algorithms for the computation of greatest common divisor of integers. The experiments show that elimination of global broadcasting significantly reduces both area and time consumption. We eliminate broadcasting by using a novel technique which is more suitable to arithmetic algorithms than Leiserson conversion lemma.
