The authors compare various array multiplier architectures based on (p,q) counter circuits. The tradeoff in multiplier design is always between adding complexity and increasing speed. It is shown that by using a (2,2,3) counter cell it is possible to gain a significant increase in speed over a conventional full-adder, carry-save array based approach. The increase in complexity should be easily accommodated using modern emitter-coupled-logic processes.
