It depends on the required ACCURACY and restrictions of TIME. 1. If accuracy is low (610 bits), then table lookup method is best. 2. If accuracy is high (3264 bits and more), BUT you are not restricted in time then DISTRIBUTED ARITHMETIC method is best. 3. Middle and high accuracy and serious restrictions of time go to CORDIC method. You may read about that in
