Abstract

Truncated multipliers compute the n most-significant bits of the n × n bits product. This paper focuses on variable-correction truncated multipliers, where some partial-products are discarded, to reduce complexity, and a suitable compensation function is added to partly compensate the introduced error. The optimal compensation function, that minimizes the mean square error, is obtained in this paper in closed-form for the first time. A sub optimal compensation function, best suited for hardware implementation, is introduced. Efficient multipliers implementation based on sub-optimal function is discussed. Proposed truncated multipliers are extensively compared with previously proposed circuits. Experimental results, for a 0.18 μm technology, are also presented.
