Berger Check Prediction for Array Multipliers and Array Dividers
July 1993 (vol. 42 no. 7)
pp. 892-896

The authors present closed-form check-predicting equations for deriving Berger checks (J.M. Berger, 1961) for array multipliers and array dividers, respectively. Braun's array multipliers and Guild's array dividers are examined. Example check circuits are also presented.
