fast packed BCD mutiply on 8051

stefan63stefan63 Member Posts: 1
i'm working on 8051 microprocessor.
Fast multiply of packed BCD numbers is nessecary.
8051 has only DecimalAdjustafterAddition(DA A) instruction.
Hardwre multiplier can multiply 8bitX8bit binary.
My default procedure multiplyes AB*CD (A,B,C,D - decimal digits) with
about 64 instructions. Other (not tested) procedure has 37
instructions and about 650 bytes in lookup tables.
Is there faster method?
