What is the difference between Serial and Parallel Adder?

Some key differences between a Serial and Parallel Adder are that a Serial Adder is slower, a Parallel adder is a combinational circuit and the time required for addition depends on the number of bits in a Serial, but not a Parallel. A Serial Adder is a sequential circuit while a Parallel is a combinational circuit.

Comparison of serial adder and parallel adder?

serial adder: 1) Slower 2) It uses shift registers 3) IT requires one full adder circuit. 4) It is sequential circuit. 5) Time required for addition depends on number of bits. Parallel adder: 1) Faster 2) It uses registers with parallel load capacity 3) No. of full adder circuit is equal to no. of bits in binary adder. 4)It is a combinational circuit 5)Time required does not depend on the number of bits
