In this paper, the authors are to provide a solution for VLSI designers to design configurable booth multiplier that supports single 4-bit, single 8-bit, single 12-bit or single 16-bit multiplication. Multiplication is one of the basic functions used in digital signal processing for computation. Therefore, they need efficient algorithms to reduce the computations. Hence in order to minimize the number of cycles, a dynamic range detection technique is introduced to dynamically detect the effective dynamic ranges of two input operands so as to make the booth multiplier configurable.
