Exploiting addition schemes for the improvement of optimized radix-2 and radix-4 fft butterflies

In FFT computation, the butterflies play a central role, since they allow the calculation of complex terms. Therefore, the optimization of the butterfly can contribute for the power reduction in FFT architectures. In this paper we exploit different addition schemes in order to improve the efficiency of 16 bit-width radix-2 and radix-4 FFT butterflies… (More)
