|Issue Date:||2009||Publisher:||Elsevier||Source:||Integration, the VLSI Journal, 2009, Volume 42, Issue 2, Pages 217-226||Abstract:||High throughput is a crucial factor in bit-serial GF(2m) fields multiplication for a variety of different applications including cryptography, error coding detection and computer algebra. The throughput of a multiplier is dependent on the required number of clock cycles to reach a result and its critical path delay. However, most bit-serial GF(2m) multipliers do not manage to reduce the required number of clock cycles below the threshold of m clock cycles without increasing dramatically their critical path delay. This increase is more evident if a multiplier is designed to be versatile. In this article, a new versatile bit-serial MSB multiplier for GF(2m) fields is proposed that achieves a 50% increase on average in throughput when compared to other designs, with a very small increase in its critical path delay. This is achieved by an average 33.4% reduction in the required number of clock cycles below m. The proposed design can handle arbitrary bit-lengths upper bounded by m and is suitable for applications where the field order may vary.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/7305||ISSN:||01679260||DOI:||10.1016/j.vlsi.2008.07.003||Rights:||© Elsevier B.V.|
