The author shows that a multiplier already proposed by T. Rhyne and N.R. Strader for unsigned numbers can be used for two's complement numbers as well, provided only that the content of the input registers is held constant, after the introduction of the operand's sign bits, for a number of clock periods equal to the operand's length. The result is derived by the properties of sign-extended two'
serial-input multipliers; two's complement numbers; sign-extended; linear array; parallel counters; static registers; adders; carry registers; digital arithmetic; multiplying circuits.
