Unified Approach to the Design of Modulo-(2n +/- 1) Adders Based on Signed-LSB Representation of Residues
Moduli of the form 2n ± 1, which greatly simplify certain arithmetic operations in residue number systems (RNS), have been of longstanding interest. A steady stream of designs for modulo-(2n ± 1) adders has rendered the latency of such adders quite competitive with ordinary adders. The next logical step is to approach the problem in a unified and systematic manner that does not require each design to be taken up from scratch and to undergo the error-prone and labor-intensive optimization for high speed and low power dissipation. Accordingly, we devise a new redundant representation of mod-(2n ± 1) residues that allows ordinary fast adders and a small amount of peripheral logic to be used for mod-(2n ± 1) addition. Advantages of the building-block approach include shorter design time, easier exploration of the design space (area/speed/power tradeoffs), and greater confidence in the correctness of the resulting circuits. Advantages of the unified design include the possibility of fa...
