The Arithmetic and logical unit play an important role in digital systems. Particular, Multiplication is especially relevant instead of other arithmetic operators, such as division or exponentiation, which one is also utilized by multiplier as building blocks. Multipliers are key components of many high performance systems such as FIR filters, microprocessors, digital signal processors, etc. A system's performance is generally determined by the performance of the multiplier because the multiplier is generally the slowest element in the system. For faster computation, this paper compared Robertson's and Booth's algorithm in which quick and accurate performance of multiplier operation has been done.
