VLSI Implementation of a High Performance Barrel Shifter Architecture Using Three Different Logic Design Styles

Barrel shifters are often required for performing data shifting and rotation in many key computer operations from address decoding to computer arithmetic. In this paper, the authors present a comparative study of various parameters like delay, power and area, for a high performance 16-bit barrel shifter VLSI implementations using three different logic design styles (conventional CMOS, transmission gate CMOS and Dual rail Domino CMOS logic) in 0.6mm, N-well CMOS process. The proposed barrel shifter implementations shows better performance as compared to implementation by the researcher.
