In this paper the utilization of Residue Number System (RNS) is investigated as a tool for variation-tolerant design. In particular circuits using various RNS bases are compared to the equivalent binary structures in terms of their sensitivity to the variation of process parameters. Furthermore, RNS advantages are quantitatively illustrated by considering a… CONTINUE READING
