Guy Even †. February 1, Abstract. We present a self-contained and detailed description of the parallel-prefix adder of Ladner and Fischer. Very little. Abstract. Ladner –Fischer adder is one of the parallel prefix adders. Parallel prefix adders are used to speed up the process of arithmetic operation.

Generalized MAC Figure A 7,3 counter tree is based on 7,3 counters. Figure 2 shows the 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. Each set includes k sum bits and an outgoing carry. The block size m is fixed to 4 in the generator. The structure a illustrates a typical situation, where the MAC is used to perform a multiply-add operation in an iterative fashion.

Arithmetic Module Generator AMG lxdner various hardware algorithms for two-operand adders and multi-operand adders. The fixed block size should be selected so that the time for the longest carry-propagation chain can be minimized.

The carry-skip adder is usually comparable in speed to the carry look-ahead technique, but it requires less chip area and consumes less power.

Figure 18 shows an operand overturned-stairs tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs. 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.


If there are five or more blocks in a RCLA, 4 blocks are grouped into a single superblock, with the second level of look-ahead applied to the superblocks. This reduces the ripple-carry delay through these blocks. In this generator, we employ a minimum length encoding based on positive-negative representation.

Unlike the conditional-sum adder, the sizes of the kth group is chosen so as to equalize the delay of the ripple-carry within the group and the delay of the carry-select chain from group 1 to group k. Figure 16 shows an operand Wallace tree, where CSA indicates a carry-save adder having three multi-bit inputs and two multi-bit outputs.

On the addeg hand, the structure b shows a faster design, where two product terms are computed simultaneously in a single iteration. The fundamental carry operator is represented as Figure 4.

A carry-skip adder reduces the carry-propagation time by skipping over groups of consecutive adder stages. Array is a straightforward way to accumulate partial products using a number of adders. Therefore, let Gi and Pi denote the generation and propagation at the ith stage, we have: The equation ladjer 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.

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

Hardware algorithms for arithmetic modules

A parallel prefix adder can be represented laner a parallel prefix graph consisting of carry operator nodes. AMG provides multiply accumulators in the form: Figure 5 is the parallel prefix graph of a Ladner-Fischer adder.


There are many possible choices for the multiplier structure for a specific coefficient R. Figure 13 shows a bit carry-skip adder consisting of seven variable-size blocks. 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. Figure 14 compares the delay information of true paths and that of false paths fisfher the aeder of Hitachi 0.

The above idea is applied to each of groups separately. Figure 12 shows an 8-bit carry-skip adder consisting of four fixed-size blocks, each of size 2. Figure 22 shows a n-term multiply accumulator. We employ Dadda’s strategy for constructing 7,3 counter trees. The RCLA design is obtained by using multiple levels of carry look-ahead. Each group generates two sets of sum bits and an outgoing carry.

A block carry look-ahead adder BCLA is based on the above idea. Redundant binary RB addition tree has a more regular structure than an ordinary CSA tree made of 3,2 counters because the RB partial products are added up in the binary tree form by RB 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.
