We present the design of a carry skip adder that achieves low power dissipation and high-performance operation. The carry skip adder's delay and power dissipation are reduced by dividing the adder into variable-sized blocks that balance the delay of inputs to the carry chain. This grouping reduces active power by minimizing extraneous glitches and transitions. Each block also uses highly optimized complementing carry look-ahead logic to reduce delay. Compared to previous designs, the adder… CONTINUE READING
