Digital signal processing such as discrete Fourier transform requires complex number arithmetic. Number-theoretical properties favor odd-radix systems for simple implementation of complex number operations. An array ternary complex multiplier is presented and compared to other complex multipliers. As an illustration, a perfectly balanced ternary system is implemented by means of current-mode threshold logic gates.
