* Let us consider the two 2-bit binary numbers A1A0 and B1B0 as shown in Fig 1.The result of this 2X2 bit multiplication would be 4 bits that is C2, S2, S1 and S0 as shown in Fig 2.
For the TAG RAM we have k1= 4 bits. On Data RAM the 128 useful bits are divided in 4 groups of 32 bits each, and for each group we will calculate the number of control bits.
For the TAG RAM we have k1= 4 bits. On data part the 128 useful bits are divided in 2 groups of 64 bits each, and for each group we will calculate the number of control bits.
In case B, the total number of control bits is k = 28 (4 bits on
In case C, the total number of control bits is k = 18 (4 bits on TAG RAM and 14 bits on Data RAM), and total number of used bits in this case is 153.
