In this brief, two designs of low-error fixed-width sign-magnitude parallel multipliers and two's-complement parallel multipliers for digital signal processing applications are presented. Given two n-bit inputs, the fixed-width multipliers generate n-bit (instead of 2n-bit) products with low product error, but use only about half the area and less delay when compared with a standard parallel multiplier. In them, cost-effective carry-generating circuits are designed, respectively, to make the products generated more accurately and quickly. Applying the same approach, a low-error reduced-width multiplier with output bit-width between n and 2n has also been designed. Experimental results show that the proposed fixed-width and reduced-width multipliers have lower error than all other fixed-width multipliers and are still cost-effective. Due to these properties, they are very suitable for use in many multimedia and digital signal processing applications such as digital filtering, arithmetic coding, wavelet transformation, echo cancellation, etc.
