Design of High Performance 64 Bit MAC Unit
A design of high performance 64 bit. Multiplier-and-ACcumulator (MAC) is implemented in this paper. MAC unit performs important operation in many of the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) applications. The multiplier is designed using modified Wallace multiplier and the adder is done with carry save adder. The total design is coded with Verilog-HDL and the synthesis is done using Cadence RTL complier using typical libraries of TSMC O.18um technology. The total MAC unit operates at 217MHz. The total power dissipation is 177.732mW.
