Designing pipelined cellular arrays for arithmetical purposes, the choice of circuit design style is crucial. Usually, this choice is made by establishing an optimal area-time-power tradeoff. In order to achieve this result, analysis and simulations of the whole designed array have to be repeatedly performed for several design styles, This paper presents a methodology that allows the same result to be obtained avoiding time-consuming simulations of an entire array. The proposed technique is based on an appropriate partitioning of the arrays into small subcircuits. The features of the latter are analytically recomposed to evaluate performances and costs of an array of any size for various design approaches.
