Carry Skip Adder Verilog Code

16 bit Carry Bypass Adder Verilog Code

carry-skip adder (also known as a carry-bypass adder) is an adder implementation that improves on the delay of a ripple-carry adder with little effort compared to other adders. The improvement of the worst-case delay is achieved by using several carry-skip adders to form a block-carry-skip adder. For more information about carry bypass adder you can refer to this wikipedia article.

Basic structure of 4-bit Carry Skip/Bypass Adder is shown below.



The Verilog Code for 16-bit Carry Skip Adder is given below-

`timescale 1ns / 1ps

module carry_skip_16bit(a, b, cin, sum, cout);
input [15:0] a,b;
input cin;
output cout;
output [15:0] sum;

wire [2:0] c;

carry_skip_4bit csa1(.a(a[3:0]), .b(b[3:0]), .cin(cin), .sum(sum[3:0]), .cout(c[0]));
carry_skip_4bit csa2 (.a(a[7:4]), .b(b[7:4]), .cin(c[0]), .sum(sum[7:4]), .cout(c[1]));
carry_skip_4bit csa3(.a(a[11:8]), .b(b[11:8]), .cin(c[1]), .sum(sum[11:8]), .cout(c[2]));
carry_skip_4bit csa4(.a(a[15:12]), .b(b[15:12]), .cin(c[2]), .sum(sum[15:12]), .cout(cout));


// Carry Skip Adder 4 bit

module carry_skip_4bit(a, b, cin, sum, cout);
input [3:0] a,b;
input cin;
output [3:0] sum;
output cout;
wire [3:0] p;
wire c0;
wire bp;

ripple_carry_4_bit rca1 (.a(a[3:0]), .b(b[3:0]), .cin(cin), .sum(sum[3:0]), .cout(c0));
generate_p p1(a,b,p,bp);
mux2X1 m0(.in0(c0),.in1(cin),.sel(bp),.out(cout));

// Propagate Generation

module generate_p(a,b,p,bp);
input [3:0] a,b;
output [3:0] p;
output bp;
assign p= a^b;//get all propagate bits
assign bp= &p;// and p0p1p2p3 bits

//4-bit Ripple Carry Adder
module ripple_carry_4_bit(a, b, cin, sum, cout);
input [3:0] a,b;
input cin;
wire c1,c2,c3;
output [3:0] sum;
output cout;

full_adder fa0(.a(a[0]), .b(b[0]),.cin(cin), .sum(sum[0]),.cout(c1));
full_adder fa1(.a(a[1]), .b(b[1]), .cin(c1), .sum(sum[1]),.cout(c2));
full_adder fa2(.a(a[2]), .b(b[2]), .cin(c2), .sum(sum[2]),.cout(c3));
full_adder fa3(.a(a[3]), .b(b[3]), .cin(c3), .sum(sum[3]),.cout(cout));

//1bit Full Adder
module full_adder(a,b,cin,sum, cout);
input a,b,cin;
output sum, cout;
wire x,y,z;
half_adder h1(.a(a), .b(b), .sum(x), .cout(y));
half_adder h2(.a(x), .b(cin), .sum(sum), .cout(z));
or or_1(cout,z,y);
// 1 bit Half Adder
module half_adder( a,b, sum, cout );
input a,b;
output sum, cout;
xor xor_1 (sum,a,b);
and and_1 (cout,a,b);

//2X1 Mux

module mux2X1( in0,in1,sel,out);
input in0,in1;
input sel;
output out;
assign out=(sel)?in1:in0;



Carry Skip Adder Simulation Results:




Cadence RTL compiler is used to synthesize the Carry Skip Adder verilog  code with Uofu standard library.  We got the following schematic after mapping the hdl code to the standard library. This is basically the synthesized view.

Can you please provide the test bench as well for Xilinx.
