This paper presents a novel methodology to significantly improve the speed performance of a 32 bit estimated carry (ESTC) adder and extends the theory of the ESTC adder, and shows that further performance benefits can be achieved by using the statistical approach together with multiple carries. The simulation results for multiple carries, shows that the 32-bit adder can achieve dramatic speed advantages over other adders. Furthermore, the comparison in term of delay-area product shows a saving of 44.2% over a ripple adder, 41% over carry select adder; with ripple adder elements, and over 26% on carry select look-ahead adders.
