The main aim of this approach is to improve the design model of filters for optimal circuit design. The objective of this proposed method is to improve the performance of VLSI circuit like area, power, and delay. In recent days, the filters are most applicable designs in DSP, medical diagnosis and arithmetic computations. In Digital Signal Processing and communication applications, the FIR filter plays an important role. The Finite Impulse Response is designed with number of adders, multipliers, subtraction units, transfer functions and delay elements. The VLSI circuits are applied in various applications, but the number adders and multipliers occupy the design space since it increases the area and delay factors. The main aim is to reduce the number of adders and multiplier by various computational algorithms. The existing research work uses carry save accumulator with ripple carry adder and binary multiplier. In proposed method, the enhanced Vedic multiplication logic and improved carry lookahead adder logic improves the result. In Vedic multiplication algorithm, the number of adder logic is minimized by adding speculative Brent-kung adder logic in it. The fastest adder in VLSI circuit is CLA (Carry look ahead adder logic), which is improved by utilizing the result of reduced power consumption and delay. In this proposed research work, the power optimization is done by using enhanced clock gating technique. Here, area, power, and delay factors are measured and it is compared with conventional FIR filter design. The proposed method improves the result in the way of area, power, and delay. The whole FIR filter structure is designed and power optimized by connecting with an enhanced clock gating technique. This proposed design and simulate by using Xilinx ISE 14.5 and it is synthesize by ModelSim.
