Abstract: An improved conditional carry selection (CCS) circuit is proposed in this paper. The new circuit is compared with the conventional conditional carry selection structure for a 4-bit adder. The two circuits were simulated by SPICE under the same condition and the results show that the propagation time of carry and sum (C3 and S3)of 4-bit adder are reduced 34.39% and 33.95%, respectively.
