Design a 16 bit x 16 bit combinatorial multiplier. Use a topology similar to the 4x4 multiplier shown in Chapter 5.

Design a 16 bit x 16 bit combinatorial multiplier. Use a topology similar to the 4x4 multiplier shown in Chapter 5.

Answer the following questions for this design by using constraints set by prior homework problems.

- How many Adders would this design require?
- How many 2-input gates would this design require?
- How many transistors would the design require?
- What would the total silicon area be for this design?  (Use the estimated area for a 2-input gate from a prior homework problem.)
- What would the total capacitance of this design be?
- What would the cost be for this design?  (Assume $10,000 / mm^2)
- If each additional 16 bit multiplier after the first one only cost $1, how many would have to be purchased for the average price to be $3?

This problem will add up to 15 points to your homework score.
