Improving the Energy/Power Consumption of Parallel Decimal Multipliers.

Received Date:01 February 2014, Accepted Date:22 February 2014, Published Date:03 March 2014


Decimal arithmetic has gained intensive attention in the last decade. Most commercial, financial, scientific, and internet-based applications need their data to be precise, while binary number system loses preciseness in some cases. The latency and area are two major factors in existing research works on decimal multiplication. However, energy/power consumption is another important factor in today’s digital systems. Hence, in this paper we proposed a new low power decimal adder based on prediction technique for decreasing the energy/power consumption of parallel decimal multiplication and show its impacts on one of the well-known parallel decimal multipliers architecture. Our observations show 11.5% improvement in terms of total power consumption and 10.13% improvement in terms of energy consumption.
