This paper presents new structures of combinatorial multipliers based on current-mode gates – digital elements operating with constant, continuous power supply current. Designed multipliers are intended for use in radix N and modulo N arithmetic units. Proposed structures are based on the radix N adders, and therefore are simple and regular. All these structures were successfully tested in the SPICE simulator.

Keywords: digital multipliers, radix N arithmetic, modulo N arithmetic, multiple-valued logic.
