The data sheet for the COREGen Multiplier states that to create a smaller core, use the serial multiplier instead of the parallel multiplier. When I implement a multiplier through SysGen, the parallel multiplier is smaller than the serial multiplier and no matter what options I set for the serial multiplier it is always larger. Why is this?
This is a known issue, and the reason this occurs is because IOs are always being registered and maximum pipelining is always set.
This has been fixed in System Generator v6.2
