Designs for high-speed combined squarers, capable of operating on either unsigned or two's complement numbers, are presented. High speed is achieved in part by using a modestly sized ROM table to generate the less significant bits of the square, and combinational logic to generate the more significant bits. These squarers have a shorter carry propagate chain in the final adder and a smaller amount of combinational logic than previous hybrid designs. Area and delay estimates indicate that the combined hybrid squarers presented in this paper have between 28% and 64% percent less area and between 9% and 15% percent less delay than previous unsigned hybrid squarers for 32-bit operands.
