Applications based on Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) such as signal and image processing require high computational power. This paper proposes the implementation of radix-4 based parallel-pipelined Fast Fourier Transform processor which incorporates a low power commutator, butter-fly with multiplier-less architecture. The proposed parallel pipelined architectures have the advantages of high throughput and low power consumption. The multiplier-less architecture uses shift and addition operations to realize complex multiplications.
