A modification of the Chen-Kuck 8-bit carry circuit is presented with one less gate delay and a proof is given that this is the best possible time. The corresponding results for longer length circuits are summarized.
time delays, Binary addition, combinational circuit synthesis, component counts, computer arithmetic, fast adders, parallel adders
