In this paper, a numerical solver for stiff ordinary differential equations (ODEs) known as the Extended Singly Diagonally Implicit Block Backward Differentiation Formulas (ESDIBDDF) is developed. Objectives of this study are to analyse the A( )  − stability of the ESDIBBDF method and enhance its accuracy by employing a strategy that minimizes the error norm to optimize the values of free parameters. In addition to that, accuracy of the method is to be enhanced by approximating solutions by implementing extra functions to be evaluated. The formula is specifically designed in a lower triangular form with equal diagonal coefficients, enabling faster computation of numerical solutions. Numerical experiments are conducted to assess the efficiency of this method as a solver for stiff ODEs, comparing it with existing methods. The A( )  − stability analysis is verified and conditions for convergence are discussed. The conclusive works efficiently as an alternate solver for stiff ODEs. The research recommended extended application of the developed method to solve applied problems.
