ABSTRACT

In High-performance VLSI circuits, the on-chip power densities are playing dominant role in both static and dynamic conditions due to shrinking device features. The consumed power is usually dissipated heat, affecting the performance and reliability of the chip. Complex Multiplier is an arithmetic circuit that is extensively used in DSP and communication applications like, FFT, Digital Filters etc. For fast circuit implementation, parallel multiplier is preferred. For large bit-width multiplications, a large number of adders are required to perform the partial product addition.. Compressors are used to compress partial product addition stages. Higher order compressors permit the reduction of the vertical critical paths in parallel multiplier resulting in better speed-power product for the multiplier circuit. Thesis presents a novel scheme for 16*16 bit multiplier using thirteen different types of compressors. The scheme is optimized for low power as well as high speed implementation over reported schemes. It represents low power multiplier design methodology, which counts only number of 1’s in the partial products. .

Introduction The electronics industry has achieved a phenomenal growth over the last two decades, mainly due to the rapid advances in integration technologies, large-scale systems design - in short, due to the advent of VLSI. The number of applications of integrated circuits in high-performance computing, telecommunications, and consumer electronics has been rising steadily, and at a very fast pace. Increasing demand for portable electronics for computing and communication, as well as other applications, has necessitated longer battery life, lower weight, and lower power consumption. In order to satisfy these requirements, research activities focusing on low power/low voltage design techniques are underway. Since 'power' is now one of the design decision variables, the expanded design space required for low power has further increased the complexity of an already non-trivial task. Low power design basically involves two concomitant tasks: power estimation and analysis and power minimization. These tasks need to be carried out at each of the levels in the design hierarchy, namely, the behavioral, architectural, logic, circuit and physical levels.[1] In the survey of the current state of the field, many of the salient power estimation and minimization techniques proposed for low power VLSI design are reviewed. For each of the design levels, we provide an overview of several power estimation and minimization approaches and the CAD tools that support them. Finally, future research issues are discussed that will be necessary in order to make the low power design endeavor a successful one. In the majority of digital signal processing (DSP) applications the critical operations are the multiplication and accumulation. Real-time signal processing requires high speed and high throughput Multiplier unit that consumes low power, which is always a key to achieve a high performance digital signal processing system. The purpose of this work is design and implementation of a low power multiplier unit with block enabling technique to save power[2].

1.1

Introduction

Sizes of devices are scaling down by Moore Law. The sources of energy consumption on a CMOS chip can be classified as static and dynamic power dissipation. The dominant component of energy consumption in CMOS is dynamic power consumption caused by the actual effort of the circuit to switch. A first order approximation of the dynamic power consumption of CMOS circuitry is given by the formula: P = C*V2*f

Where P is the power, C is the effective switch capacitance, V is the supply voltage, and f is the frequency of operation. The power dissipation arises from the charging and discharging of the circuit node capacitances found on the output of every logic gate. Power management is the careful planning of power budget for every subsystem of a VLSI chip. This is especially important issue for today’s complex systems. The most important and successful use of power management is to deactivate a portion of circuit when its computation is not required [3]. Every low-to-high logic transition in a digital circuit incurs a change of voltage, drawing energy from the power supply. A designer at the technological and architectural level can try to minimize the variables

in

these

equations

minimize

the

energy

consumption. However, power minimization is often a complex process of trade-offs between speed, area, and power consumption. The current work proposes reduction of dynamic switching power in 16*16 complex multiplier by using higher order compressors to reduce the switching activity as well as reduction of gate counts.

Multipliers require high amount of power and delay during the partial products addition. At this stage, most of the multipliers are designed with different kind of adders that are capable to add two/three or at most 4 bits by using 4-2 compressors. For higher

order multiplications, a huge number of adders or compressors are used to perform the partial product addition. Binary counter property has been merged with the compressor property to develop higher order compressors[3] [5].

1.2

Complex Number:-

A complex number is a number comprising a real and imaginary part. It can be written in the form a + bi, where a and b are real numbers, and i is the standard imaginary unit with the property i 2 = −1. To construct a complex number, we associate with each real number a second real number. A complex number is then an ordered pair of real numbers(a,b). Complex numbers were first conceived and defined to to find solutions to cubic equations. The solution of a general cubic equation in radicals (without trigonometric functions) may require intermediate calculations containing the square roots of negative numbers, even when the final solutions are real numbers. This ultimately led to the fundamental theorem of algebra, which shows that with complex numbers, a solution exists to every polynomial equation of degree one or higher. Complex numbers thus form an algebraically closed field, where any polynomial equation has a root. Complex numbers are usually written in the form (A+Bi), where a and b are real numbers, and i is the imaginary unit, which has the property i 2 = −1. The real number a is called the real part of the complex number, and the real number b is the imaginary part. For example, 3 + 2i is a complex number, with real part 3 and imaginary part 2. If, Z=A+Bi, the real part A is denoted by Re(Z) and imaginary part B is denoted by Im(Z). The complex numbers (C) are regarded as an extension of the real numbers (R) by considering every real number as a complex number with an imaginary part of zero. The real number a is identified with the complex number a + 0i. Complex numbers with a real part of zero (Re(z)=0) are called imaginary numbers. Instead of writing 0 + bi, that imaginary number is usually denoted as just bi. If b equals 1, instead of using 0 + 1i or 1i, the number is denoted as i. Two complex numbers are said to be equal if and only if their real parts are equal and their imaginary parts are equal. In other words, if the two complex numbers are

written as a + bi and c + di with a, b, c, and d real, then they are equal if and only if a = c and b = d .[4] [5]

1.2.1 Operations of Complex Numbers:-

Complex numbers are added, subtracted, multiplied, and divided by formally applying the associative, commutative and distributive laws of algebra, together with the equation i2 =

−1. Here,i is the abbreviation of √–1(square root of -1). In other words, i is

something whose square is –1. i) Addition :-

Survey of Complex Multiplication

In many real-time DSP applications, high performance is a prime target. However, achieving this may be done at the expense of area, power dissipation and accuracy. Attempts have been made to use alternative number systems to optimize the realization of arithmetic blocks, maintaining high performance without incurring prohibitive area and power increases[1]. Fourier transforms play an important role in many digital signal processing applications including speech, signal and image processing. However, direct computation of Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) requires on the order of N 2 operations where N is the transform size. Parallel-pipelined FFTs are preferred for both high throughput and low power consumption. 2.1 General rule of Complex Multiplication:-

Consider two complex numbers: (a+bi) and (c+di) ,then (a+bi).(c+di)=(ac-bd) + (ad+bc)i

(ac-bd) is the Real Part of Complex Multiplication and (ad+bc) is the Imaginary Part of

Complex Multiplication. Remember that (ac–bd), the real part of the product, is the product of the real parts minus the product of the imaginary parts, but (ad + bc), the imaginary part of the product, is the sum of the two products of one real part and the other imaginary part.

The positive value

is called the modulus of Z and is denoted as |Z|.

Z=a+bi , then |Z|=

2.2 Cases of Multiplication:-

i)

Multiplication of Complex Number with Real Number:-

In the above formula for multiplication, if d is zero, then you get a formula for multiplying a complex number a+bi and a real number c together: (a+bi).c = ac + bc i.

In other words, we just multiply both parts of the complex number by the real number. For example, let us take two numbers (1+2i) and 3 then after multiplication of these two numbers we get:(1+2i).3= 3+6i

Geometrically, when you double a complex number, just double the distance from the origin, 0. Similarly, when you multiply a complex number z by 1/2, the result will be half way between 0 and z. You can think of multiplication by 2 as a transformation which stretches the complex plane C by a factor of 2 away from 0; and multiplication by 1/2 as a transformation which squeezes C toward 0. ii)

Multiplication of Complex Number with Imaginary Number:-

In the above formula for multiplication, if c is zero, then you get a formula for multipliying a complex number a+bi and a imaginary number d together: (a+bi).di = -bd+ad i.

In other words, we just multiply both parts of the complex number by the imaginary number. For example, let us take two numbers (1+2i) and 3i then after multiplication of these two numbers we get:(1+2i). 3i= -6+3i

2.3 Types of Complex Multiplication 2.3.1 Complex Multiplication for Area Efficient:i) Complex Multiplication using LNS [2]:-

Complex Multiplication for Lower Area i.e. to reduce hardware cost of realizing Complex Multiplier is explained below using Logarithmic Number System(LNS). LNS based complex multiplier employs correction algorithm. It composed with four real multipliers, one adder and one subtractor. Attempts have been made to optimize the realization of the complex multiplier by reducing the number of multipliers and accumulating the partial products; however, the wider the input, the more partial product layers that must be added in order to compute the result. To solve this problem, one can consider the LNS to realize the multiplication as shown in Equations Xo=AC-BD = log -1(log A + log C) – log -1(log B+ log D) Yo=BC+AD = log -1(log B+log C) + log -1(log A + log D) Figure shows the complex multiplier block diagram that is composed from logarithmic and anti-logarithmic converters and N-Bit Adders. This method can significantly reduce the hardware to build a multiplier. LNS provides a simple technique to compute multiplication at the cost of reduced precision. This approach has limited accuracy. ii) Complex Multiplier using OBC and DA [3] :-

A well known Area-Efficient method to implement Complex Multiplier is Offset Binary Coded and Distributed Arithmetic. The structure of Complex Multiplier using OBC-DA is shown below:-

Figure 2.1. OBC-DA based Complex Multiplier structure[3]

It is formed by the following modules: a) Two registers that store a W-bits word each (-(cR-cI) and -(cR+cI)), whose outputs are connected to two multiplexers that are controlled by an XOR of the input bits. b) Two shift-accumulators SA to add and shift the multiplexer output. In this structure a subtraction can happens in each cycle of the computation, as a difference with the previous one where it only happens during the last cycle. The extrabit slide is a bit-serial adder which is needed to complete the two’s complement in any cycle. Another difference is that SA2 includes hardware for loading the offset value (Ao) in carry registers. 2.3.2 Multiplication of Complex Number using a low power parallel multiplier:-

The Conventional Technique of Complex Multiplier is given as (A

+ Bj) . (C + Dj) = (AC –BD) + (AD + BC )j

It requires four multiplication and two adders . In this technique a different way for the realization of complex multiplication that reduces complexity of the circuit. The canonical form of the obtained circuits makes them well suited for VLSI realizations.

Besides circuit reduction, the hardware or software for the control in the realization of the algorithms is simplified, especially when either of these includes only complex operations, as in an FET. Each complex bit takes four possible values. Consequently, it must be represented by two bits. This representation allows the development of algorithms for operations with complex numbers and the ability to describe these algorithms in the bit-level. It is natural that these algorithms and the corresponding circuits have great similarities to those for real numbers in two’s complement form. Complex Parallel multiplication is the most critical for realization. The parallel multiplier includes specialized hardware circuitry designed to perform complex multiplication operations at high speeds. The parallel multiplier requires significantly less die area than conventionally required, which results in reduced manufacturing costs and reduced power consumption.[4]

2.4 Related Research:-

In FPGA designs power reduction is possible only through reduced switching activity, which is also called dynamic power. In general dynamic power consumption is defined as the power consumed while the clock is running and the external inputs are switching. In general design practices to reduce switching activity reduction can be controlled at various levels of the design flow. Architectural decisions in the early design phases have the greatest impact. For high switching signals, delay balancing and reduction of the number of logic levels are among the most efficient techniques to tackle power penalty. An obvious method to reduce the switching activity is to shut down the idle part of the circuit, which is not in operating condition. A general M x N parallel multiplier operates by computing the partial products in parallel and by shifting and accumulating the partial products. Switching activity is poorly correlated with the input coefficient. In particular, reducing the switching activity of the component used in the design can minimize the power dissipation i.e. if kth bit of the coefficient is zero, the kth row of adders need not be activated. However, this type of multiplier does not help us for reduced switching since there is unnecessarily switching of adders even if the kth bit is zero.

Figure 2.2 4x4 Braun Multiplier

Above figure shows structure of 4*4 Braun Multplier. An n*n bit Braun Multiplier requires n(n-1) adders and n2 AND gates. In these technique each partial product can be added to previous sum of partial products by using row of adders. The Carry-out signals are shifted one bit to the left and then added to the sum of the first adder which is adition of partial product bits. The shifting of carry-out bits to the left is done by carry-save adder. As carry bits are passed diagonally downward to the next adder stage, there is no horizontal carry propagation for the first four rows. Instead, the respective carry bit is “saved” for the subsequent adder stage. Braun Multiplier has some drawback that, the number of components required in building the Braun Multiplier increases quadratically with number of bits. This makes Braun Multiplier inefficient. The delay of Braun Multiplier is dependent on full adder cell and also on final adder in last row. In this multiplier array, a full adder with balanced carry and sum delays is desirable because sum and carry both are in critical path . 2.4.2 Baugh-Wooley Multiplier[6]:-

Baugh-Wooley Multiplier are used for both unsigned and signed number multiplication. Signed Number operands which are represented in 2’s complemented

form. Partial Products are adjusted such that negative sign move to last step, which in turn maximize the regularity of the multiplication array. Baugh-Wooley Multiplier operates on signed operands with 2’s complement representation to make sure that the signs of all partial products are positive. To reiterate, the numerical value of 2’s complement numbers, suppose X and Y can be obtained from following product terms made of one AND gate.

Variables with bars denotes prior inversions. Inverters are connected before the input of the full adder or the AND gates as required by the algorithm. Each column represents the addition in accordance with the respective weight of the product term. 2.4.3 Multiplier using Bypassing circuitary:-

In these technique, The main idea of our approach is based on the observation that most modern multipliers produce a large number of signal transitions while adding zero partial products. If, any bit of the multiplier is zero that row of adders need not to be activated, since corresponding partial product is zero. The adders of these multiplier, however perform summation of the zero partial products and, as result, exhibit redundant signal switching. The increased activity of the internal nodes results in unnecessary power dissipation[7] [8]. To disable this adder rows we have to bypass the partial product of previous adder row to next adder row. It modifies the unnecessary transitions and bypass inputs to outputs when corresponding partial product is zero. Multiplexers are used at the output of full adder to pass the partial product directly when it is zero to the next stage.

Figure 2.3 4*4 Bypass Multiplier

The tri-state buffers, placed at the inputs of the adder cell, disable signal transitions in those adding cells which are bypassed. The output carry-bits c are passed downwards, instead of to the right [9]. 2.4.4 Multiplier using Adder-Subtractor Unit(ASU)[4] :-

In these technique, higher power reduction can be achieved if the operand contains more number of 0’s than 1’s. In this approach it was propose Binary / Booth Recoding Unit which will force operand to have more number of zeros. The advantage here is that if operand contains more successive number of ones then Binary / Booth Recoding unit converts these ones in zeros. Adder-Subtractor Unit also removes the extra 2’s complement addition circuitry needed. Use of look up table is again an added advantage to this design. The switching activity of the component used in the design depends on the input bit coefficient. This means if the input bit coefficient is zero, corresponding row or column of adders need not be activated. If operand contains more zeros, higher power reduction can be achieved. We proposed a Binary / Booth Recoding Unit which will force operand to have more number of zeros.

Figure 2.4 4*4 ASU Multiplier [4]

Figure shows the 4x4 low power ASU multiplier structure. This technique will be very useful as we go for higher width of the multiplicand specially when there are successive numbers of ones.Each ASU will work as an adder or subtractor depending upon the sign bit of sign register. For multiplication with b it will make ASU to work as subtractor and with 0 and 1, it will work as an adder. The great advantage of this technique is that we don’t need extra addition circuitry to add sign extension bits when multiplicand bit is –1. In the upper row of architecture we need to and sign bits with b0. Since when sj=1 and b0=0, if not added produces wrong outputs. At the bottom, ASU will work as half adder or subtractor depending upon the sign bits. For higher width of multiplicand smart adder chain will continue. bi

2.5 Signed Number Multiplication:-

As we seen in unsigned multiplication, user has to input number as well as sign ,so for total operation of this multiplier we required more hardware and more switching operation hence the switching power, i.e. dynamic power will be more for Unsigned Multiplication. In Signed Multiplication, directly user has to enter signed number, so there is no need to enter separate sign bit for all four numbers. The only difference between Signed number and Unsigned number is the range of the number. As, we saw earlier in section 3.1 the range of the Unsigned number is from 0 to 2ⁿ-1. So, the range of the Signed Number is from –2ⁿ -1 to +(2ⁿ -1-1). 2.5.1 Representation of Negative Numbers:-

For fixed-point number in a radix r system, we have to determine way of negative number to be represented. Two different forms are commonly used:1. Sign and Magnitude Representation. 2. Complement Representation.

1.Sign and Magnitude Representation:-

In this form of representation sign and magnitude are represented separately. First digit is sign bit and the remaining (n-1) bits are magnitude. In binary case, ‘0’ is represented as positive and ‘1’ is represented as negative. In the non-binary case, value 0 and (r-1) are assigned to the sign digit of positive and negative number, respectively. In the binary case all 2n sequences are utilized. The 2n-1 sequence from 00----0 to 01----1 represents positive number, while the remaining 2n-1 sequences from 10----0 to 11----1 represents negative number. A major disadvantage of the signed-magnitude representation is that the operation to be performed may depend on the signs of the operand. For example, when adding a positive number X and a negative number –Y, we need to perform the calculation X+(-Y). If, Y>X, then we should obtain as a final result –(Y-X). For that we have to perform (Y-X) ,i.e., switch the order of operands and perform subtraction rather than addition, and then attach minus sign to it. Example:- +7 would be 111 and then a 0 in front so 00000111 for an 8-bit representation. -9 would be 1001 (+9) and then a 1 so 10001001 for an 8-bit representation 2. Complement Representation:-

In complement representation, numbers are represented as two’s complement in the binary section. In this method, positive number is represented in the same way as signed-magnitude method. It is most widely used method of representation. Positive numbers are simply represented as a binary number with ‘0’ as sign bit. To get negative number convert all 0’s to 1’s , all 1’s to 0’s and then add ‘1’ to it. Suppose, a number which are in 2’s complement form and we have to find its value in binary, then if number starts with ‘0’ then it is a positive number and if number starts with ‘1’ then it is a negative number. If, number is negative take the 2’s complement of that number, we will get number in ordinary binary. Let us take, 1101. Take the 2’s complement then we will get 0011. As, number is started with ‘1’ it is negative number and 0011 is binary representation of positive 3. So, the number is -3. Similarly, we are representing other negative numbers in 2’s complement representation.

Suppose we are adding +5 and -5 in decimal we get ‘0’. Now, represent these numbers in 2’s complement form, then we get +5 as 0101 and -5 as 1011. On adding these two numbers we get 10000. Discard carry, then the number is represented as ‘0’ In this signed multiplication we had modified the Complex Multiplication strategy, normally we are having Four Multipliers and three adder/subtractor blocks. But,in modified strategy we require Three Multipliers and five Adders. For Complex Multiplication of two numbers:-

(a+jb).(c+jd) we get Real Part:-

(c-d).b + c.(a-b)

Imaginary Part:- (c+d).a – c.(a-b) So, we required only Three Multiplication term as c.(a-b) is common term in both results. Hence, we are saving more power than we used in previous method of Complex Multiplication. 2.5.2 Booth’s Recoding Algorithm:Parallel Multiplication using basic Booth’s Recoding algorithm technique based on the fact that partial product can be generated for group of consecutive 0’s and 1’s which is called as Booth’s Recoding. These Booth’s Recoding algorithm is used to generate efficient partial product. These Partial Products always have large number of bits than the input number of bits. This width of partial product is usually depends upon the radix scheme used for recoding. These generated partial products are added by compressor’s

as explained in section

3.2. So, these scheme uses less partial products which comprises low power and area. There are two types of algorithm Radix-2 and Radix-4 to generate efficient partial products for multiplication. First we will explain basic technique of Booth’s Recoding algorithm and then Modified Booth’s Recoding technique for both Radix-2 and Radix-4 algorithm.

2.5.3 Basic Technique of Booth’s Recoding Algorithm for Radix2 and Radix-4:Booth has proposed Radix algorithm for high speed multiplication which

The

Booth’s

algorithm for multiplication is based on this observation. To do a multiplication A*B, where A= an ,an-1…..a0 is a multiplier

B= bn ,bn-1…..b0 is a multiplicand then, we check every two consecutive bits in A at a time:Ai 0 0 1

Let us take example:Radix-2:-

Suppose A is Multiplier having value -5 and B is Multiplicand having value +2 then, B=> 0010 (+2) A=> 1011 (-5) After looking into above table for multiplicand, first we see two LSB values and then adjacent values in A. We, get partial product as:i)

For 10 we have to perform -1.B, i.e., 2’s complement of B, 1110.

ii)

For 11 we have to put all 0’s i.e., 0000.

iii)

For 01 we have to perform 1.B, i.e., value of B,0010

iv)

For 10 again -1.B, i.e. 1110.

Here, some bits are encapsulated called as correction bits to match the width of partial products.

Radix 4:A=> -5 => 1 1 1 1 1 0 1 1 B=> 46 => 0 0 1 0 1 1 1 0, then the following Partial Products are generated:-

In the above technique of Booth’s Algorithm vertical length of partial products are more, hence more adders are required, so power and area will be more.

Multiplier Unit

As explained in previous chapters about various technique of Complex Multipliers, we found that implementation of Complex Multipliers are implemented using more than one number of Basic Multipliers are required, i.e. to implement normal way to implement Complex Multiplication, four Basic Multipliers are required. To make Complex Multiplier as low power unit, this Basic Multipliers are designed by using Compressor technique. If, the Basic Multiplier is designed as low power then Complex Multiplier also becomes a low power unit.

Partial Product Generator

Different Order Compressors

Parallel Adder

Below is the description of all three blocks that are used for multiplication. 3.1 Partial Product Generator:-

In Unsigned Multiplier, normally we are generating partial products and adding them to generate result of multiplier. Let ‘A’ and ‘B’ are two n-bit unsigned numbers which is generating product ‘Z’ which is of 2n-bit. First we are generating Partial products by using ‘AND’ operation. For n bit number multiplication n*n number of partial product generated.

Let us take two 16-bit numbers A15-A0 called Multiplicand and B15-B0 called Multiplier as inputs of multiplier, partial products are generated by ANDing each bit of ‘A’ with each bit of ‘B’, so 16*16=256 number of partial products are generated. Each bit of multiplicand is ANDed with every bit of multiplicand. a0 is ANDed with b0-b15 producing m00-m015 sixteen partial product for first row. Similarly, for other 14 rows we are using AND operation of a1-a15 with b0-b15 for producing other 240 remaining partial products i.e. from m01-m1515.

Figure 3.2. Partial Product Generator(4 Bit)

In above diagram Partial Product Generator is explained. a0 bit which is multiplicand is ANDed with other bits of multiplier b0-b3 producing sixteen partial products m00-m33. This Partial Products is going to the inputs of Compressors to compress the partial product stages. This Compressors are used to reduce the stages of partial products into only two stages.

3.2 Different Order Compressors[1][3][4]:After Generation of Partial Products, these partial products are going to inputs to compressors. Compressors are used to reduce the partial product stages of the multiplier. The main operation of compressors is to count number of 1’s. After generating partial products we have make vertical groups. This vertical groups will count number of 1’s and count value of that group is passed it on second stage.

3.2.1 Adder as Counter:Adder circuit whether it is a full adder or half adder can be used as a counter which counts number of 1’s.

Table 3.2. Full Adder as a Counter[2]

Above table shows the half adder and full adder as a counter, it counts number of 1’s , if inputs are A,B and C then its count value carry and sum together gives number of 1’s in binary form. Carry is Most Significant Bit and Sum is Least Significant Bit. This adder which uses three inputs and generating two outputs, so it means it compresses three bits into two bits called 3:2 compressor. Similarly, on the basis of these logic we can make other types of compressors having more number of inputs called higher order compressors. These compressors count number of 1’s of

higher number of inputs. So, as vertical length of partial products increases we can use these higher order compressors.

3.2.2Compressor 3.2.2Compressor Logic:Different Compressor logic based upon the concept of counter of full adder. It can be defined as single bit adder circuit that has more than three inputs as in full adder and less number of outputs. It is noticed that in full adder there are three outputs so, it will count upto three(11). Similarly, for three bit output it will count upto maximum seven(111) value. Compressors having four,five,six and seven number of inputs produces three number of outputs which counts maximum seven(111) value. Other Compressors having eight to fifteen number of inputs produces four number of outputs which counts maximu maximum m fiftee fifteen(1 n(111 111) 1) value. value.

3.4 Architecture of Multiplier Using Compressor:Following figure shows the Architecture of 8*8 Multiplier using different order Compressors.

.

Figure 3.19. Architecture of 8*8 Multiplier using Compressors[2]

As, shown in above figure Partial Products are added in four stages. Adders and different compressors are used to minimize the stage operations. Compressors are used carefully so that minimum number of outputs are generated. Consider column number eight, where eight bits are added at the first stage. These eight bits are added by using 8:4 Compressor, that generates four output which eventually decreases number of bits for next stage. It is to be mentioned that output of each compressor from 4:3 to 7:3 has bit position jth, (j+1)th and (j+2)th, where jth bit is LSB bit and (j+2)th bit is MSB bit.Compressor from 8:4 to 15:4 has bit position jth, (j+1)th, (j+2)th and (j+3)th, where jth bit is LSB and (j+3)th is MSB. Compressor 16:5 has bit position jth, (j+1)th, (j+2)th, (j+3)th and (j+4)th, where jth bit is LSB and (j+4)th is MSB.

Suppose, if compressor in column number four i.e.,4:3 Compressor, its jth output goes to column number four and next adjacent output i.e.,(j+1)th output goes to column number five and (j+2)th output goes to column number six. Similarly, for eight column i.e. for 8:4 compressor,its jth output goes to column number eight and next adjacent output (j+1)th output goes to column number nine and last output(j+3)th output goes to column number eleven. Thus, these compressors are used to reduce vertical critical path more rapidly. Now, similarly for next stage if vertical path having bit more than two bits, we used compressors of that many bits to reduce again the vertical critical path. Finally, we use compressors upto the stage where only vertically two bits are there and that two bits are added parallely as explained in section 3.3.

Chapter 4.

Proposed Complex Multiplier In these Chapter we proposed new Complex Multiplier for both unsigned and signed Complex Multiplication. 4.1 Unsigned Multiplication:-

As, we saw in General rule of Complex Multiplication when we multiplying two complex numbers we are getting four different multipliers and three adders/subtractors. The range of unsigned number is 0 to 2ⁿ-1 Being as a unsigned number, we have to enter separate sign for all four real numbers hence, we are getting real and imaginary parts of the number with sign of real and imaginary by using some combinational logic we are getting Real and Imaginary sign output.

Figure 4.1. Block Diagram of Unsigned Complex Multiplier

As shown in figure 1, we are entering four real numbers ‘a’,’b’,’c’ and ‘d’ & sign of each number as ‘sa’, ‘sb’, ‘sc’, ‘sd’. After, multiplying the Real numbers using four Multipliers and by using Add/Sub Block of 32 bit we are getting output as “rr” which is Real part and “ri” which is Imaginary part of the result of Complex Multiplication. Similarly, to get sign of result for both Real and Imaginary part we have to apply some combinational logic for sign inputs and we are getting output sign as “ssr” for Real part and “ssi” for Imaginary part. As explained in Chapter 2. multiplication of Two Complex Numbers. (a+bi).(c+di)=(ac-bd) + (ad+bc)i

As, we are entering sign of each number separately, we have to use some combinational circuit to produce sign of result for Real part(sr) as well as Imaginary part(si). Consider first term “ac” represent as ‘e’, “bd” represent as ‘f’, “ad” represent as ‘g’ and “bc” represent as ‘h’. So, sign of these results represented as se,sf,sg and sh. So, these sign results will be generated as by using XORing operations.

se= sa xor sc.

sf= sb xnor sd.

sg= sb xor sc.

sh= sa xor sd. Figure 4.2. Combinational Logic for intermediate sign

Now, by using some condition on se, sf, sg, and sh, we are generating final sign result, i.e. for “sr” for real part and “si” for imaginary part. We are applying 2:1 Mux to generate the output sign value. ‘0’ is represented for Positive Value and ‘1’ is represented for Negative Value.

Figure 4.3. Combinational Circuit for output sign Real Part and Imaginary Part

4.2 Signed Multiplication:-

Figure 4.4. Modified Complex Multiplier Block Diagram .

Above Block Diagram shows Modified Complex Multiplier which consists of three multipliers and three adder/subtractor unit. These multiplier requires one less multiplier compare to previous technique. So, it consumes less power. To perform signed multiplication we are using Booth’s Radix algorithm. Booth’s Radix algorithm reduces partial products as compared to normal multiplier algorithm. So, it reduces the switching operation of the multiplier, hence reduces power. It is based on the fact that partial product can be generated for group of consecutive zeros & ones which is called as Booth’s recoding.

4.2.1 Modified Technique Recoding Algorithm for Radix-2 and Radix-4[1][2]:Parallel Multiplication using basic Booth Recoding Technique is explained in previous section. Since this technique requires lot of adders as a

result it requires more power & area. In next proposed multiplier design, we have reduced number of adders required in partial product addition. Hence, reduction of vertical length of Partial Products. In these technique, mainly correction bits are reduced This is done without compromising correctness of multiplication of 2’s complement numbers. We have used Multiplexer based Booth Recoding scheme to reduce the length and width of partial products. In these technique, change in scheme results in partial products which after recoding are always greater than input bit length by one bit Radix-2 scheme. Similarly, in Radix-4 scheme recoding are always greater than input bit length by two bits. These additional bit/bits are act as a correction bit/bits to get correct value of the multiplier. Also, at hardware realization of Booth’s recoding scheme, we can remove extra select line, which is used at the time of recoding. Because of this extra select lines multiplexer size become large. We have observed that if we do not consider this extra bit at the time of hardware realization we can reduces size of one multiplexer. So, in radix 2 LSB decides first partial product. Also, in radix 4 first two LSB bits decides first partial product. Now these partial products have been added using proposed array of adders to achieve correct multiplication output. The working of this novel design has been explained in following sections.

Figure 4.5 Block Diagram of Modified Booth’s Recoding unit Multiplier[1]

In order to achieve signed number multiplication Partial Products are generated using Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit Multiplication block. After generation of new Partial products these are added using Compressors and Parallel adder. Below is the explanation of Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit for Multiplier. 4.2.2 Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit[3]:-

Partial Products are generated using Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit block. As, we saw in previous section generation of Partial Products for basic Booth’s Recoding algorithm, using the same concept we are generating partial products for Modified Booth’s Recoding Algorithm having the length of partial product more than input bit sequence by one for Radix-2 scheme and by two for Radix-4 scheme.

These modified technique is explained below:Radix-2 Method:-

As, we saw in Table 1. output partial products are added and shifted according to input sequence. Here, we are using multiplexers to generate recoding unit. Select lines of multiplexers are input bits of multiplier and outputs are according to modified table as shown below:Ai 0 0 1

Explanation All 0’s [ B(n-1) , B ] --------

[ B(n-1) , (-B) ] All 0’s

Table 4.3 Modified Booth’s Recoding Algorithm Radix 2

This can be explained with simple example:Suppose B => 1100 (-4) A => 1010 (-6) So, according to table as shown above we will obtained recoding bits as partial products:PP0 => 0 0 0 0 0 PP1 => 0 0 1 0 0 PP2 => 1 1 1 0 0 PP3 => 0 0 1 0 0 Here, in Modified Booth’s Recoding algorithm one extra bit is added to the MSB of the input bit sequence as shown in Table. The hardware realization for this recoding unit is based on multiplexers and include 2’s complement unit. At the time of recoding we are assuming one extra bit ‘0’ before the LSB of input bit sequence and these extra bit ‘0’ decides Partial Product according the sequence as explained in Table above. We have observed that at the time of hardware realization only LSB is sufficient to get partial products, because of these multiplexer become 2x1 rather than 4x1 and other

multiplexers will remain same as per their input select lines depending upon recoding scheme. So, multiplexers are important hardware for Booth’s Recoding unit. Radix-4 Method:-

Radix-4 scheme is same as above Radix-2 scheme which is also used to reduce the partial product, so it is very useful for fast multiplication of long input bit sequence. Here, partial products we got from recoding unit is always 2 bit more than input bits. So, if input bits are n bits then partial product length will be of (n+2) bits. Ai+1 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1

Above Table shows how partial products are generated according to input bit sequence. Here, we are generating two extra bits according the input bit. These two bits are correction bits to get corrected output of multiplication. MSBs of partial products need to be added carefully. For that, new structure of adder array is introduced. This modification removes the problem of large number of correction bits which requires more numbers of adders hence more higher order compressors.

4.3 Compressors and Adders:-

Recoding and Addition scheme for Radix-2 and Radix-4 for four bit input sequence [4] [5]:-

Figure 4.6 Addition scheme for Radix-2

Above figure shows the addition scheme for Radix-2 which having five bit partial product. These partial product are added using compressor scheme as explained previously. Here, value of m(0)(4) is added diagonally. i.e, added with diagonal bit which is MSB of second partial product and also a correction bit. So, we are adding m(0)(4) with m(1)(4) and result of that is putting in place of m(1)(4). Similarly, that new value of MSB of second partial product row is added with old MSB of third partial product to get new value of MSB of third partial product as shown in above figure. After getting new values of correction bit we are adding these nits by using compressors.

Figure 4.7 Architecture of 8*8 Signed Multiplier for Radix-2 [5]

Above figure shows Architecture of 8*8 Signed Multiplier for Radix-2 scheme where partial products are generated by using Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit. Here, we are generating partial product of 9 bits per row. In first stage, this partial products are divided in vertical blocks, these vertical blocks are half adders, full adders and different order compressors. Vertical block of 2 Bits are half adders and vertical block of 3 bits are full adders. Output of these adders and compressors arranged as explained in chapter 3. Horizontal blocks are parallel adders which are used for addition to generate final multiplication result.

Figure 4.8 Addition scheme for Radix-4

Above figure shows addition scheme for Radix-4 which having six partial product bits, four LSB bits are input sequence and two MSB’s are correction bit. Here, MSB of the first row of partial products is added to both MSB’s of second row. In Modified Radix-4 scheme total number of partial products row are half of the normal partial product scheme. Suppose, if the multiplier is of 4*4 bit then total number of rows for partial product including correction bits are two, i.e. half of the rows of original scheme as shown in above figure. Similarly, for other wide bit multiplier using radix-4 scheme total number of partial products row are half of the original, that results in less switching operation hence, less power.

Figure 4.9 Architecture of 8*8 Signed Multiplier for Radix-4

Above figure shows Architecture of 8*8 Signed Multiplier of Radix-4 scheme where Partial Products are generated by using Modified Booth’s Recoding Unit. In this scheme we are generating partial products of 10 bit each, i.e. extra two bit for each row as explained in table of Radix-4 scheme. The main advantage of Radix-4 scheme is that number of rows for partial products are become half of the Radix-2 method, i.e., here in 8*8 multiplier number of partial products row are become four, so less compressors are required and hence less switching operation which causes low-power.

Results and Discussion

5.1 Behavioral Simulation 5.2 Synthesis Report 5.3 Power Calculation 5.4 Layout

This section shows all the results of different blocks which are used for implementation of Complex Multiplier. It consists of Simulation Results of different blocks, Synthesis Report and Power Calculation of different blocks. Power of the design is calculated by giving 100 Random Inputs. Test Bench is written in VHDL. The textio format is used where, input is given in input file called infile and we are getting output in output file called outfile. All of the below design are simulated using ModelSim XE III 6.2g, synthesized by using Xilinx ISE Project Navigator 9.1i, power calculation using Xilinx XPower tool. Power Calculation is also calculated in ASIC Encounter synthesis tool.

5.1 Behavioral Simulation:i) Unsigned Basic Multiplier16*16:-

Figure 5.1 Behavioral Simulation of Unsigned 16*16 Basic Multiplier

Above Figure shows the simulation of 16*16 unsigned multiplier. Inputs are ‘a’ and ‘b’ each of 16 bit, while ‘z’ is the 32 bit output. As, this is unsigned multiplier range of input number is from 0 to 65535. Here, in these type of multiplier no negative number is considered. All are positive numbers. As shown in the simulation diagram if both inputs ‘a’ and ‘b’ value is entered as unsigned 7 i.e. “0000000000000111”

in binary we get output ‘z’ value as 49 in unsigned format. Consider the

maximum value i.e. 65535 which is highest value for 16 bit unsigned format. It consists of all 1’s i.e. “1111111111111111”

in binary, we get output ‘z’ as 4294836225 which is the maximum value for

16*16 unsigned multiplier.

Unsigned Complex Multiplier 16*16:-

Figure 5.2 Behavioral Simulation of 16*16 Unsigned Complex Multiplier.

Above figure shows waveform of 16*16 Complex Multiplier for unsigned number. Here, four inputs are there ‘a’,’b’,’c’ and ‘d’ of 16 bit input each. As, the inputs are unsigned number, we have to enter sign of each number separately. So, for all four inputs we are entering sign bit as ‘sa’ for input ‘a’, ‘sb’ for input ‘b’, ‘sc’ for input ‘c’ and ‘sd’ for input ‘d’. As explained in section 4.1 block diagram of unsigned complex multiplication, we are getting output of complex multiplier as shown in above figure. Operation of Complex Multiplier is explained in above simulation waveform. iii) Signed Multiplier 16*16:a) Radix-2:-

Figure 5.3 Behavioral Simulation of 16*16 Basic Signed Multiplier

Above figure shows Behavioral Simulation of 16*16 Basic Signed Multiplier. In these scheme we have to enter signed values of input i.e.,’a’ and ‘b’. Inputs are of 16 bit while output ‘x’ is of 32 bit. Here, the range of the numbers are from -32768 to +32767. As, these is signed number multiplier so both positive and negative numbers are considered. As shown in above figure result of signed multiplier, here we don’t have to input sign value of each input as we are required in Unsigned scheme. Negative numbers are entered in 2’s complement form. Suppose, we are putting value of ‘a’ and ‘b’ as 7 and -7 respectively. As, ‘a’ is positive number so we enter value as “0000000000000111” and ‘b’ as negative number so, we enter value as “111111111111001” for -7 which is in 2’s complement form. Result ‘z’ we got here in these case is in binary form is “1111111111001111” which is value of -49 in 2’s complement form. b) Radix-4

In Radix-4 design simulation result is same as Radix-2 scheme. Only difference between these two schemes are synthesis report iv) Signed 16*16 Complex Multiplier:i) Radix-2

Figure 5.4 Behavioral Simulation of 16*16 Complex Signed Multiplier

Above figure shows Behavioral simulation of 16*16 Complex Signed Multiplier. In these scheme we are entering inputs ‘a’,’b’,’c’ and ‘d’ in both positive and negative format. So, there is no need to enter sign bits for all inputs. As, we discussed the range of the number and format of number in previous section, consider the first example where a=1,b=2,c=3 and d=4. All these numbers are positive number so we put their binary values as normal binary weighted values. After calculation of (1+2i).(3+4i) we get result as 5-10i. Real part is +5 and imaginary part is -10. These result in binary format is written as for +5 it is “00000000000000000000000000000101” and for -10 it is “11111111111111111111111111110110” which is in 2’s complement form. v) Radix-4:-

Behavioral Simulation of Radix-4 Complex Multiplier is same as Radix-2 scheme.

Conclusion and Future Work

6.1 Conclusion 6.2 Future Work

This Chapter summarizes the conclusion for the design and also explained about future work. 6.1 Conclusion:-

Parallel Complex Multiplier using different order Compressors is explained. Use of Compressors are used to reduce the switching activity and propagation delay for the Multipliers. It also reduced vertical critical path delay, hence reduces stages of partial products. Optimal use of all these thirteen different compressors improves the speed as well as power performance of the multiplier. As, the delay and power both are reduced then power-delay product is also reduced. Results are calculated in both FPGA and ASIC. FPGA we used in our design is xc2vp205ff1152 to calculate all synthesis report and power for all multipliers. For, ASIC design we used Encounter Synthesis Tool to calculate hardware information and power for all multipliers. It is found that signed multipliers has less area and low power compared to unsigned multiplier. 6.2 Future Work:-

Complex Multiplier of higher width can be implemented using these compressors. More higher order compressors can be design to reduce the vertical height for higher width multiplier, hence we can achieve less power.Design of these Complex Multipliers are used to implement FFT/IFFT design which are used in DSP applications.
