Continuous advances of microelectronic technologies make better use of energy, encode data more effectively, transmit information more reliable, etc. Particularly, many of these technologies address low-power consumption to meet the requirements of various portable applications. In this paper, the author proposes the design and implementation of Booth multiplier using VHDL. This compares the power consumption and delay of radix 2 and modified radix 4 Booth multipliers. Experimental results demonstrate that the modified radix 4 Booth multiplier has 22.9% power reduction than the conventional radix 2 Booth Multiplier.
