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 ladneg.

A block carry look-ahead adder BCLA is based on the above idea. In other words, a carry is generated if both operand bits are 1, and an incoming carry is propagated if one of the operand bits is 1 and the other is 0. 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 laadner to optimize the number of basic components.

Dadda tree is based on 3,2 discher. Each group generates two sets of sum bits and an outgoing carry. When the incoming carry into the group is assigned, its final value is selected out of the two sets. Finally, the carry-save form is converted to the corresponding binary output at FSA.

The carry-save form is converted to the corresponding binary output by an FSA. The fixed block size should be selected so that the time for the longest carry-propagation chain can be minimized. The Booth recoding of the multiplier reduces the number of partial products and hence has a possibility of reducing the amount of hardware involved and the execution time.

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. Array is a straightforward way to accumulate partial products using a number of adders. Partial products are generated with Radix-4 modified Booth fische.

Figure 18 shows fisvher operand overturned-stairs tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having lxdner multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs. The RCLA design is obtained by using multiple levels of carry look-ahead. The complexity of multiplier structures significantly varies with the coefficient value R.

On the other hand, the structure b shows a faster design, where two product terms are computed simultaneously in a single iteration. AMG provides constant-coefficient multipliers in the form: The hardware algorithms for constant-coefficient multiplication are based on multi-input 1-output addition algorithms i. Figure 2 shows ladjer parallel prefix graph of a bit RCLA, where the symbol solid circle indicates an extension of the fundamental carry operator described at Parallel prefix adders.

The equation can be interpreted as stating that there is a lsdner either if one is generated at that stage or if one is propagated from the preceding stage.

### Hardware algorithms for arithmetic modules

One set assumes that the eventual incoming carry will be zero, while the other assumes that it will be one. To reduce the hardware complexity, we allow the use of 2,2 counters in addition to 3,2 counters. The number of wiring tracks is a measure of wiring complexity. The n-operand array consists of n-2 carry-save adder.

We consider here the use of special number representation called Signed-Weight SW number system, which is useful for constructing compact PPAs.

A constant-coefficient multiplier is given as a part of MACs as follow. One set assumes that the incoming carry into the group is 0, the other assumes that it is 1. AMG provides multiply accumulators in the form: We employ Dadda’s strategy for constructing 7,3 counter trees. The adder structure is divided into blocks of consecutive stages with a simple ripple-carry scheme.

The main idea behind carry look-ahead addition is an attempt to generate all incoming carries in parallel and avoid waiting until the correct carry propagates from the stage FA of the adder where it has been adcer. A carry-skip adder reduces the carry-propagation time by skipping over groups of consecutive adder stages.

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. Figure 16 shows an operand Wallace tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs.

The PPA stage then performs multi-operand addition fizcher all the generated partial products and produces their sum in carry-save form. Fischre basic idea in the conditional sum adder is to generate two sets of outputs for a given group of operand bits, say, k bits.

## Parallel Prefix Adders A Case Study

These expressions allow us to calculate all the carries in parallel from the operands. Given fisscher matrix of partial product bits, the number of bits in each column is reduced to minimize the number of 3,2 and 2,2 counters. Figure 5 is the parallel prefix graph of a Ladner-Fischer adder. A parallel prefix adder can be represented as a parallel prefix graph consisting of carry operator nodes.

Figure 3 shows the parallel prefix graph of a bit BCLA, where the symbol solid circle indicates an extension of the fundamental carry added described at Parallel prefix adders.

This adder structure has minimum logic depth, and full binary tree with minimum fun-out, resulting in a fast adder but with a large area. This optimal organization of block size includes L blocks with sizes k1, k2, 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.

Figure 12 shows an 8-bit carry-skip adder consisting of four fixed-size blocks, each of size 2.

Figure 8 is the parallel prefix graph of a Han-Carlson adder. Generalized MAC Figure The idea of the ripple-block carry look-ahead addition is to lessen the fan-in and fan-out difficulties inherent in carry look-ahead adders. 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.

To reduce the hardware complexity, we allow the use of 6,35,34,33,2and 2,2 counters in addition to 7,3 counters. Balanced delay tree requires the smallest number of wiring tracks but has the highest overall delay compared with the Wallace tree and the overturned-stairs tree.

Wallace tree is known for their optimal computation time, when adding multiple operands to two outputs using carry-save adders. The Wallace tree guarantees the lowest overall delay but requires the largest number of wiring tracks vertical feedthroughs between adjacent bit-slices.
