Design and Implementation of Reconfigurable Low-Power Pipelined Booth Multiplier

Liang, shish-chang 22 August 2007 (has links)
With the portable computing devices and wireless communication systems are popularly used, the power consumption became one of the major targets of VLSI design. However, multiplier is always a fundamental component and influences the power consumption and performance much in many DSP and multimedia applications. Therefore, multiplier is the crucial design and need to be concerned at first. In these systems, the data width of input data is various because the different applications are operated in the same system. According to this characteristic of input data, this paper presents architecture of reconfigurable multiplier without the necessity to completely reconfigure the internal layout of a programmable device. The multiplier employs the Booth algorithm which reduces the partial products to half to implement the sign multiplication. In order to reduce power consumption, the proposed multiplier introduces the clock gating technique to disable the circuit which does not need to be computed. Moreover, the energy-efficient multiplier presented in this thesis can perform multiplication with different data widths to further decrease power dissipation and enhance performance. In this work, we proposed two versions of multipliers. The first version is reconfigurable pipelined Booth multiplier, which can perform one n by n multiplication or two n/2 by n/2 multiplications concurrently. When the multiplier performs n-bit multiplication, it can reduce power consumption by disabling the unnecessary blocks according to the input data. The second version further deploys the truncated functionality to provide different way to make multiplication more energy-efficient. Experiment shows that the proposed multipliers can perform multiplication with less energy and lower power dissipation. It is certain that the more functions the design provides, the more area it will cost.

RSA in hardware

Gillmore, Brooks Colin 21 February 2011 (has links)
This report presents the RSA encryption and decryption schemes and discusses several methods for expediting the computations required, specifically the modular exponentiation operation that is required for RSA. A hardware implementation of the CIOS (Coarsely Integrated Operand Scanning) algorithm for modular multiplication is attempted on a XILINX Spartan3 FPGA in the TLL-5000 development platform used at the University of Texas at Austin. The development of the hardware is discussed in detail and some Verilog source code is provided for an implementation of modular multiplication. Some source code is also provided for an RSA executable to run on the TLL-6219 ARM-based development platform, to be used to generate test vectors. / text

Štefánek, Tomáš January 2009 (has links)
The aim of this thesis is to design a clamping unit with mechanical multiplier. Unit will serve as a technological clamping element in the technical equipment. My task was to select the method of construction and design driving main unit for grip jaw. I chose a solution with a mechanical multiplier. The frame unit is made up of fixed and sliding clamping jaw and is self. Unit is designed as a built module. The entire structure must be designed to meet the initial parameters specified in the award of thesis. The main parameters include clamping strength of 80kN, the extent of working stroke 15 mm and the size of a scroll, which is 250 mm. They are also listed in the award size constraints: the length, width, height dimensions and the coupling unit.

A Stream-Based In-Line Allocatable Multiplier for Configurable Computing

Yang, Tsung-Han 05 September 1997 (has links)
The growing demand for high-performance computing platforms has pushed the computing community to invent new architectures for processors. Recently, researchers have begun to solve the problem by the implementation of Field-Programming Gate Arrays (FPGAs). FPGAs make it possible to implement different applications on the same hardware. Unfortunately, FPGAs suffer from low bandwidth, density, and throughout. To gain the flexibility of FPGAs and to gain more computational capacity than conventional processors have, Wormhole run-time reconfigurable (RTR) techniques has been developed to address some high performance digital signal processing (DSP) problems. Multiplication is one of the basic functions used in digital signal processing. Most high-performance DSP systems rely on hardware multiplication to achieve high data throughput. To meet the processing needs of DSP, a multiplier was embedded into a prototype wormhole RTR device called Colt, but because each design has its own speed and size requirements, rarely can a designer take an already existing multiplier module and use it in Colt. Therefore redesigning multipliers is necessary for meeting the system specifications of Colt. This thesis explores the design of the multiplier from architecture level to circuit level. / Master of Science

A Low-Power and High-Performance Function Generator for Multiplier-Based Arithmetic Operations

Jan, Jeng-Shiun 23 June 2002 (has links)
In this thesis, we develop an automatic hardware synthesizer for multiplier-based arithmetic functions such as parallel multipliers/multiplier-accumulator/inner-product calculator. The synthesizer is divided into two major phases. In the first phase called pre-layout netlist generation, the synthesizer generates the gate-level verilog codes and the corresponding test fixture file for pre-layout simulation. The second phase, called layout-generation, is to produce the CIF file of final physical layout based on the gate-level netlist generated in the first phase. The thesis focuses on the first phase. The irregular connection of the Wallace tree in the parallel multiplier is optimized in order to reduce the overall delay and power. In addition to the conventional 3:2 couter that is usually included in standard cell library, our synthesizer can select other different compression elements that are full-custom designed using pass-transistor logic. We also propose several methods to partition the final addition part of the parallel multiplier into several regions in order to further reduce the critical path delay and the area cost. Thus, our multiplier generator combines the advantages of three basic design approaches: high-level synthesis, cell-based design and full-custom design along with area and power optimization.

Progressive product reduction for polynomial basis multiplication over GF(3m)

Moeen, Kareem 09 December 2016 (has links)
Galois fields are essential blocks of building many of cryptographic schemes. The main advantage of applying Galois fields over cryptographic applications are to reduce cost and increase the sufficiency of the performance. In past, they were interested in implement Galois field of characteristic 2 in most of the crypto-system application, but in the meantime, the researcher started to work on Galois field of odd characteristics which it has applications in many areas like Elliptic Curve Cryptography, Identity-based Encryption, Short Signature Schemes and etc. In this thesis, an odd characteristic Galois field was implemented. In particular, this thesis focuses on implementation of multiplication and reduction on GF(3m). Overview about the thesis idea was presented in the beginning. Finite field arithmetic was discussed where it shows some of the Galois fields important definitions and properties. In addition, irreducible polynomials over GF(p) where p is prime and the basic additional and multiplication over GF(pm) was discussed as well. Introduction to the proposed implementation started with the arithmetic of the Galois field characteristics 3. The problem formulation introduced by its mathematical representation and the Progressive Product Reduction (PPR) technique which is the technique used in this thesis. Implement three different semi-systolic arrays architecture with different projection functions. This stage followed by modeling assumption for complexity analysis for both area and delay where it used to compare proposed designs with other published designs. Proposed design gets verified by Matlab code implementation at the end of this thesis. / Graduate / Kareem.moeen@gmail.com

Design of Low-Power Pipelined Multipliers with Various Output Precision

Chuang, Yuan-chih 21 July 2006 (has links)
With the emergence of portable computing and communication systems, power consumption has become one of the major objectives during VLSI design. Furthermore, multipliers are always fundamental building blocks and the bottleneck in terms of power consumption in many DSP and multimedia applications. Therefore, it is crucial to minimize the power consumption of multipliers in the system for low-power VLSI design. Besides, energy-efficient multiplier is greatly desirable for DSP systems and computer architectures. In many of these systems, the dynamic-range of input operands for multiplier is usually very small. In addition, the least significant bits of output products are often rounded or truncated to avoid growth in word size. Based on these features, this thesis presents an approach to design low-power and reconfigurable signed pipelined multipliers. The approach dynamically detects input range of the multiplier and disables the switching operations of non-effective ranges to decrease the power consumption. Moreover, the proposed approach can reconfigure the output precision of the multiplier to save power consumption. We apply this approach to two architectures: array-based and Booth-based architecture. Experimental results show that the proposed array-based pipelined multiplier leads to up 47% power saving and Booth-based multiplier leads to up 30% power saving with a little additional area and delay overheads. Besides, in order to accord with the low cost and high profit-making goal of systematic products and shorten construction period, we have designed a low-power multiplier generator. User could use the user interface to configure the multiplier size, low power architecture and the precision that user need. The generator will create the hardware architecture of low-power multiplier automatically.
