A 4×4 and 8×8 bit multiplier is demonstrated based on the Chinese abacus. As comparing the simulation result of this work with the speed of the 4×4 and 8×8 bits Braun array multiplier, the delays of the 8-bit abacus multiplier are 14% and 7.5% less than that of Braun array multiplier with 0.35ìm and 0.18ìm technologies, respectively. Meanwhile, the power consumption of the 8-bit abacus multiplier is, respectively, less about 11.9% and 22.3% also.
