In a previous paper it was shown that the use of carry lookahead adders can reduce the delay it takes to compute the product with Wallace and Dadda multipliers. In this report, a more detailed analysis is provided on the use of carry lookahead adders to implement Dadda multipliers and Wallace multipliers. These two styles present different ways to use the arithmetic components and offer different benefits. Implementations of each style of multiplier are presented in this report. The performance delay and complexity of the implementations is compared and analyzed.
