## What is combinational multiplier?

Combinational Multipliers do multiplication of two unsigned binary numbers. Each bit of the multiplier is multiplied against the multiplicand, the product is aligned according to the position of the bit within the multiplier, and the resulting products are then summed to form the final result.

## What is 16bit multiplication?

16-bit multiplication is the multiplication of two 16-bit value from another. For example, multiplying an 8-bit value by a 16-bit value results in a 24-bit value (8 + 16). A 16-bit value multiplied by another 16-bit value results in a 32-bit value (16 + 16), etc.

**What is an 8-bit multiplier?**

8-bit multiplier design comprises a 4 × 4 multiplier and an 8-bit adder for partial product addition as shown in Fig. 7. A 4 × 4 array multiplier is designed using full adder cells and AND logic gates using static CMOS.

### What is Array multiplier?

An array multiplier is a digital combinational circuit used for multiplying two binary numbers by employing an array of half adders and full adders. This is a fast way of multiplying two numbers. The Array architecture is a popular technique to implement the multipliers due to its compact structure.

### How many registers do we need to perform sequential multiplication?

Following components are required for the Hardware Implementation of multiplication algorithm : Registers: Two Registers B and Q are used to store multiplicand and multiplier respectively. Register A is used to store partial product during multiplication.

**What are the two types of multipliers?**

Top 3 Types of Multiplier in Economics

- (a) Employment Multiplier:
- (b) Price Multiplier:
- (c) Consumption Multiplier:

## Where are multipliers used?

Multipliers play an important role in today’s digital signal processing and various other applications . In high performance systems such as microprocessor, DSP etc addition and multiplication of two binary numbers is fundamental and most often used arithmetic operations.

## What is the difference between combinational multiplier and Booth’s multiplier?

In booth multiplier number of gates is reduced and hence area of booth multiplier is less than combinational multiplier. However Combinational Multiplier gives optimum number of components required. Hence for less delay requirement Booth’s multiplier is suggested.

**What is signed multiplication?**

Multiplication of two fixed point binary number in signed magnitude representation is done with process of successive shift and add operation. The sign of the product is determined from the sign of the multiplicand and multiplier. If they are alike, sign of the product is positive else negative.
