In this paper, we present a general architecture for designing hybrid carry-lookahead/carry-select adders. Several previous adders in the literature are all special cases of this general architecture. They differ in the way Boolean functions for the carries are implemented. Based on the general architecture, we propose a new implementation of high-speed 56-bit hybrid adder. The new adder directly implements group carry propagates and group carry generators without individual carry generator/propagate signals. Moreover, the group carry generator/propagate signals are complemented to gain speed. The new implementation can be in static CMOS or dynamic logic style. The critical path length of our new design is about 2/3 of the critical path lengths of previous adders; therefore, higher speed can be gained
