Fast Combined Decimal/Binary Multiplier Based on Redundant BCD 4221-8421Digit Recoding

Abstract

Many applications consider floating point arithmeticas a key component of the computations. Combineddecimal/binary arithmetic becomes an important topicsupports high-speed decimal/binary applications. A new 64-bit(16×16 digit) the combined decimal/binary multiplier is proposedand implemented in this work that can be used for both fusedmultiply-add (FMA) and multiplier unit. A new partialproducts reduction tree is shared between decimal and binarymultiplier unit. The valuation and comparison result betweenthe proposed multiplier and the previous most recent worksshows 4.66 % less delay than combined decimal/binarymultiplier and 19.33 % less delay than the fastest standalonedecimal multiplier
