# High-radix systolic modular multiplication on reconfigurable hardware

@article{McIvor2005HighradixSM, title={High-radix systolic modular multiplication on reconfigurable hardware}, author={Ciaran McIvor and M{\'a}ire O'Neill and John V. McCanny}, journal={Proceedings. 2005 IEEE International Conference on Field-Programmable Technology, 2005.}, year={2005}, pages={13-18} }

The overall aim of the work presented in this paper has been to develop Montgomery modular multiplication architectures suitable for implementation on modern reconfigurable hardware. Accordingly, novel high radix systolic array Montgomery multiplier designs are presented, as we believe that the inherent regular structure and absence of global interconnect associated with these, make them well-suited for implementation on modern FPGAs. Unlike previous approaches, each processing element (PE…
