An Efficient Carry Select Adder with Reduced Area Application

Authors: Ch. Pallavi, V.swathi

Design of area, high speed and power-efficient data path logic systems forms the largest areas of research in VLSI system design. In digital adders, the speed of addition is limited by the time required to transmit a carry through the adder. Carry Select Adder (CSLA) is one of the fastest adders used in many data-processing processors to perform fast arithmetic functions. From the structure of the CSLA, it is clear that there is scope for reducing the area and delay in the CSLA. This work uses a simple and an efficient gate-level modification (in regular structure) which drastically reduces the area and delay of the CSLA. Based on this modification 8, 16, 32, and 64-bit square-root Carry Select Adder (SQRT CSLA) architectures have been developed and compared with the regular SQRT CSLA architecture. The proposed design has reduced area and delay to a great extent when compared with the regular SQRT CSLA. This work estimates the performance of the proposed designs with the regular designs in terms of delay; area and synthesis are implemented in Xilinx FPGA. The results analysis shows that the proposed SQRT CSLA structure is better than the regular SQRT CSLA.
