A novel design of a direct analog-to-residue converter is presented in this paper. The design makes use of two successive approximation analog-to-digital (A/D) converters, a few modulo adders and a small look-up table. One of the digital-to-analog converters is modified to generate outputs which are weighted by a constant factor, and one of the comparators(More)
Due to the rapid progress in the field of VLSI, improvements in speed, power and area are quite evident. Research and development in this field are motivated by growing markets of portable mobile devices such as personal multimedia players, cellular phones, digital camcorders and digital cameras. Among the recently popular logic families, pass transistor(More)
This paper discusses the VLSI implementation of a new architecture for a multiply-accumulate unit based on Residue Number System (RNS). The architecture and VLSI implementation of an arbitrary-moduli RNS MAC are given. The cost and performance are analyzed with respect to other designs, and the analysis indicates that the design is generally quite(More)

As technology scales down, coupling between nodes of the circuits increases and becomes an important factor in interconnection analysis. In many cases like the deep submicron technology (DSM), the coupling between lines (inter-wire capacitance) is strong and the power consumed by parasitic capacitance is non-negligible [1-6]. In this work, we employ the(More)
There has been a great progress in the field of graphics processors. Since, there is no rise in the speed of the normal CPU processors; Designers are coming up with multi-core, parallel processors. Because of their popularity in parallel processing, GPUs are becoming more and more attractive for many applications. With the increasing demand in utilizing(More)
