Low Power Variable Latency Multiplier With AH Logic
Roobitha Nujum | Jini Cheriyan 
Abstract: Low power design has been an important part in VLSI system design. Digital multipliers are most critical functional units of digital filters. The overall performance of digital filters depends on the throughput of multiplier design. Aging problem of transistors has a significant effect on performance of these systems and in long term, the system may fail due to delay problems. Aging effect can be reduced by using over-design approaches, but these approaches leads to area, power inefficiency. Moreover, timing violations occur when fixed latency designs are used. Hence to reduce timing violations and to ensure reliable operation under aging effect, low power variable latency multiplier with adaptive hold logic is used. This multiplier design can be applied to digital filter so as to enhance its performance. The VHDL language is used for coding, synthesis was done by using Xilinx ISE and simulated by using Model-Sim.
