A new representation for decimal numbers is proposed. It uses a mixture of positive and negative radixes to ensure that the maximum value of a four bit decimal digit is 9. This eliminates the more complex carry generation process required in BCD addition.

On the Generalized Binary System

A carry-lookahead adder for fast addition of two operands in generalized binary numbers is developed and truncation errors for this type of representation are examined and rounding algorithms are presented to reduce these errors.

Redundant Radix-4 Representation With High Speed Arithmetic Coprocessor Using Carry Save And Redundant Signed Digit Technique

CS addition can be used in the arithmetic for division as well in that subtrahend chosen at any steps depends on the magnitude result of the preceding subtraction and that magnitude is not readily available with CS representation.
