Abstract :

A Barrel shifter is a combinational circuit which is used for shifting and rotating multiple bits in a single cycle. Presently Barrel Shifter is not present in the PIC 16 series. This paper focuses on the implementation of the advanced barrel Shifter design in the PIC 16 series (8 bit). The proposed design constitutes of advanced 8 bit barrel shifter using 2:1 mux along with overflow carry detection in the same cycle. The design is implemented on the SPARTAN 3 FPGA kit.
