In this paper, a cell-driven multiplier generator is developed that can produce high-performance gate-level netlists for multiplier-related arithmetic functional units, including multipliers, multiplier and accumulators (MAC) and dot product calculator. The generator optimizes the speed/area performance both in the partial product compression and in the final addition stage for the specified process technology. In addition to the conventional CMOS full adder cells, we have also designed fast compression elements based on pass-transistor logic for further performance improvement of the generated multipliers. Simulation results show that our proposed generator could produce better multiplier-related functional units compared to those generated using Synopsys Designware library or other previously proposed approaches.
