It is shown that when the standard Booth multiplication algorithm is extended to higher radix (>2) fixed-point multiplication, incorrect results are produced for some word sizes. A rule which modifies the algorithm to correct this problem is presented. The modification is defined for multipliers of any size, with any power of two radix.<>
