Summary: 
An energy-efficient power-aware design is highly desirable for DSP functions that encounter a wide diversity of operating scenarios in battery-powered wireless sensor network systems. Addressing this issue, this letter presents a low-power power-aware scalable pipelined Booth multiplier that makes use of dynamic-range detection unit, sharing common functional units, ensemble of optimized Wallace-trees and a 4-bit array-based adder-tree for DSP applications.
