Reverse conversion is an important exercise in achieving the properties of Residue Number System (RNS). Current algorithms available for reverse conversion exhibits greater computational overhead in terms of speed and area. In this paper, we have developed a new algorithm for reverse conversion for two-moduli set and three-moduli set that are very simple and with fewer multiplicative inverse operations than there are in the traditional algorithms like the Chinese Remainder Theorem (CRT) and Mixed Radix Conversion (MRC).
