    I am just looking at binary multipliers like this 2 bit one on wiki:

    I was wondering if binary multipliers would normally have a shift register?

    I am looking at examples and they don't seem to have d flip flops which I thought would make up a shift register.

    So my questions is do binary multipliers just use full adders and other additional logic gates, or do they require shift registers when they get upwards of 2 bit multiplication?

    Thanks for any help
