When reducing the power dissipation of resource constrained electronic systems is a priority, some precision can be traded-off for lower power consumption. In signal processing, it is possible to have an acceptable quality of the signal even introducing some errors. In this work, we apply power-gating to multipliers to obtain a programmable truncated multiplier. The method consists in disabling the least-significant columns of the multiplier by power-gating logic in the partial products… CONTINUE READING
