Carry Look Ahead Adder VHDL Code

Carry Look Ahead Adder

Carry Look Ahead Adder is fastest adder compared Ripple carry Adder. For the Purpose of carry Propagation, Carry look Ahead Adder construct Partial Full Adder, Propagation and generation Carry block. It avoid Carry propagation through each adder.

In order to implement Carry Look Ahead Adder, first implement Partial Full Adder and then Carry logic using Propagation and generation Block.

Partial Full Adder for Carry Look Ahead Adder

Partial Full Adder consist of inputs (A, B, Cin) and Outputs (S, P, G) where P is Propagate Output and G is Generate output.
