An Optimized Modified Booth Recoder

for Efficient Design of the Add-Multiply
Complex arithmetic operations are widely used in Digital Signal Processing (DSP)
applications. In this work, we focus on optimizing the design of the fused Add-Multiply (FAM)
operator for increasing performance. We investigate techniques to implement the direct
recoding of the sum of two numbers in its Modified Booth (MB) form. We introduce a
structured and efficient recoding technique and explore three different schemes by
incorporating them in FAM designs. Comparing them with the FAM designs which use
existing recoding schemes, the proposed technique yields considerable reductions in terms
of critical delay, hardware complexity and power consumption of the FAM unit.

Low-Power Pulse-Triggered Flip-Flop Design Based on a Signal Feed-Through

In this brief, a low-power flip-flop (FF) design featuring an explicit type pulse-triggered
structure and a modified true single phase clock latch based on a signal feed-through
scheme is presented. The proposed design successfully solves the long discharging path
problem in conventional explicit type pulse-triggered FF (P-FF) designs and achieves better
speed and power performance. Based on post-layout simulation results using TSMC CMOS
90-nm technology, the proposed design outperforms the conventional P-FF design dataclose-to-output (ep-DCO) by 8.2% in data-to-Q delay. In the mean time, the performance
edges on power and power- delay-product metrics are 22.7% and 29.7%, respectively.
