Multipliers based on Approximate Compressors


Subhashis Maitra*   Pages 1 - 8 ( 8 )


Background: Approximate computing is an emerging trend in recent year that trades off the requirement of exact computation for the improvement of speed and power performance.

Objective: Researchers are trying to improve the speed and power performance proposing different algorithm.

Method: This paper proposes approximate compressors used for the design of approximate multipliers.

Results: By using the proposed method, approximate multipliers of different length have been synthesized and a comparative study with previously presented multipliers have been dealt here which shows that the proposed circuits have better speed and power.

Conclusion: Finally the proposed circuits have been used for image processing applications.
