You can further increase the number of product terms computed in a single cycle depending on your target applications. Figure 14 compares the delay information of true paths and that of false paths in the case of Hitachi 0.

One set assumes that the incoming carry into the group is 0, ficsher other assumes that it is 1.

There are many possible choices for fischher multiplier structure for a specific coefficient R. Figure 13 shows a bit carry-skip adder consisting of seven variable-size blocks. The above idea is applied to each of groups separately. Another way to design a practical carry look-ahead adder is to reverse the basic design principle of the RCLA, that is, to ripple carries within blocks but to generate carries between blocks by look-ahead.

Parallel Prefix Adders A Case Study

Partial products are generated with Radix-4 modified Booth recoding. Figure 22 shows a n-term multiply accumulator. The hardware algorithms for constant-coefficient multiplication are based on multi-input 1-output addition algorithms i.

Figure 17 shows an operand balanced delay tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs. When the incoming carry into the group is assigned, its final value is selected out of the two sets. In the following, we briefly describe the hardware algorithms that can be handled by AMG.

The n-operand array consists of n-2 carry-save adder. Each group generates two sets of sum bits and an outgoing carry.

Hardware algorithms for arithmetic modules

A multiply accumulator is generated by a combination of hardware algorithms for multipliers and constant-coefficient multipliers. Dadda tree is based on 3,2 addr. Arithmetic Module Generator AMG supports various hardware algorithms for two-operand adders and multi-operand adders. Figure 16 shows an operand Wallace tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs. A block carry look-ahead adder BCLA is based on the above idea. The PPA stage then performs multi-operand addition for all the generated partial products and produces their sum in carry-save form.


Given the matrix of partial product bits, the number ldaner bits in each column is reduced to minimize the number of 3,2 and 2,2 counters.

Figure 7 is the parallel ladnrr graph of a Brent-Kung adder.

The RB addition tree is closely related to 4;2 compressor tree. Figure 5 is the parallel prefix graph of a Ladner-Fischer adder. Table 1 shows hardware algorithms that can be selected for multi-operand adders in AMG, where the bit-level optimized design indicates that the matrix of partial product bits is reorganized to optimize the number of basic components.

The most straightforward implementation of a final stage adder for two n-bit operands is a ripple carry adder, which requires n full adders FAs. The number of wiring tracks is a measure of wiring complexity. The fundamental carry operator is represented as Figure 4. Figure 15 shows an array for operand, producing 2 outputs, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs.

This process can, in principle, be continued until a group of size 1 is reached.

The equation can be interpreted as stating that there is a carry either if one is generated at that stage or if one is propagated from the preceding stage. On the other hand, the structure b shows a faster design, where two product terms are computed simultaneously in a single iteration.

Finally, the carry-save form is converted to the corresponding ffischer output at FSA. Once the incoming carry is known, we need only to select the correct set of outputs out of the two sets without waiting for the carry to further propagate through the k positions.


We consider here the use of special number representation called Signed-Weight SW number system, which is useful for constructing compact PPAs. Ladndr constant-coefficient multiplier is given as a part of MACs as follow. Figure 3 shows the parallel prefix graph of a bit BCLA, where the symbol solid circle indicates an extension of the fundamental carry operator described at Parallel prefix adders.

Please note that the delay information of carry-skip adders in Reference data page is simply estimated by using false paths instead of true paths. A parallel prefix adder can be represented as a parallel prefix graph consisting of carry operator nodes. These hardware algorithms are also used to generate multipliers, constant-coefficient multipliers and multiply accumulators.

Hardware algorithms for arithmetic modules

Figure 19 shows an operand 4;2 compressor tree, where 4;2 indicates a carry-save adder having four multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs. Therefore, let Gi and Pi denote the generation and propagation at the ith stage, we have: At present, the combination of CSD Canonic Signed-Digit coefficient encoding technique with the SW-based PPAs seems to provide the practical hardware implementation of fast constant-coefficient multipliers.

AMG provides multiply accumulators in the form: The basic idea in the conditional sum adder is to generate two sets of outputs for a given group of operand bits, say, k bits.

This signal can be used to allow an incoming carry to skip all the stages within the block and generate a block-carry-out. The block size m is fixed to 4 in the generator. Generalized MAC Figure One set fiscer that the eventual incoming carry fischrr be zero, while the other assumes that it will be one.

The complexity of multiplier structures significantly varies with the coefficient value R.
