Using internal redundant representations and limited bypass to support pipelined adders and register files

M.D. Brown, Y.N. Patt
Proceedings Eighth International Symposium on High Performance Computer Architecture  
Pipelined functional units and multi-cycle register files may require multi-level bypass networks to guarantee that an instruction's result is available any cycle after it is produced.  ...  This paper evaluates the use of redundant binary and pipelined 2's complement adders in out-of-order execution cores.  ...  We would also like to thank Andy Glew, Shih-Lien Lu, and Chris Wilkerson for their valuable discussions.

Formal Verification of an Iterative Low-Power x86 Floating-Point Multiplier with Redundant Feedback

Peter-Michael Seidel
2011 Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science  
The multiplier operates iteratively and feeds back intermediate results in redundant representation.  ...  It supports x87 and SSE instructions in various precisions and can block the issuing of new instructions.  ...  The second and third pipeline stages consist of combined addition and rounding followed by result selection, formatting for different precisions, and forwarding of the result to the register file and bypass  ...
