Design of Low- Power High-Speed Error Tolerant Shift and Add Multiplier
Multiplier is one among the fundamental components of many digital and non-digital systems and hence, their power dissipation and speed are of prime concern. In portable analog applications, where power consumption is the most important parameter, one should reduce power dissipation to the possible limit. One of the best ways to reduce dynamic power dissipation is to minimize the total switching activity, i.e., total number of signal transitions of the system. In analog computations, generation of "Good enough" results is more important than totally accurate results.
