Abstract

Multipliers play a vital role in digital systems especially in digital processors. There are many algorithms and designs were proposed in the earlier works, but still there is a need and a greater interest in designing a less complex, low power consuming, fastest multipliers. Reversible logic design became the promising technologies gaining greater interest due to less dissipation of heat and low power consumption. In this study a reversible logic gate based design of variable precision multiplier is proposed which have the greater efficiency in power consumption and speed since the partial products received are accumulated as soon as they are computed which results reduction in the need of memory.
