In this paper, the authors include the design of efficient double precision floating-point multiplier using radix-4 Modified Booth Algorithm (MBE) and Dadda algorithm. This hybrid multiplier is designed by using the advantages in both the multiplier algorithms. MBE has the advantage of reducing partial products to be added. Dadda scheme has the advantage of adding the partial products in a faster manner. Their main objective is to combine these two schemes to make the multiplier design power efficient and area efficient.
