Hi all,

I need some help. I have created an Arithmetic and Logic Unit that 
provides various functions. I want to replace the adders in the circuit 
with different adders like 'Ripple Carry Adders', 'Carry Look Ahead 
Adders', 'Carry Save Adders', etc. and compare the equivalent gate 
counts and power consumption by each ALU circuit. How can I do this? 
Which tools can be used for this study? I have implemented different 
adders and the ALU in vhdl in Xilinx Vivado. I don't think Vivado 
provides this feature. If not, what other tool I need to use?

Thanks and regards,
Rohan Narkhede
