A 32 X 32-bit multiplier using Multiplevalued current-mode circuits has been fabricated in 2-üm CMOS technology. For the multiplier based on the radix-4 signed-digit (SD) number system, 32 X 32-bit two's complement multiplication can be performed with only three-stage SD full adders (SDFA's) using a binary-tree addition scheme. The chip contains about 23 600 transistors and the effective multiplier size is about 3.2 X 5.2 mm2, which is half that of the corresponding binary CMOS multiplier. The multiply time is less than 59 ns. The performance is comparable to that of the fastest binary multiplier reported.
