Abstract. Distributed Arithmetic techniques are widely used to implement Sum-of-Products
computations such as calculations found in multimedia applications like FIR filtering and Discrete
Cosine Transform. This paper presents a flexible, low-power and high throughput array for
implementing distributed arithmetic computations. Flexibility is achieved by using an array of
elements arranged in an interconnect mesh similar to those employed in conventional FPGA
architectures. We provide results which demonstrate a significant reduction in power consumption
in addition to improvements in timing and area over standard FPGA architectures.
