Perhaps because the theory of shift register sequences finds applications in such a broad range of technical fields--among them secure, reliable, and efficient communication; digital ranging and tracking systems; deterministic simulations of random processes; and computer sequencing and timing schemes--it has appeared before now only in disjointed and scattered form, in a variety of now out-of-print or other inaccessible company reports, and in scattered journal articles.
For small area and low power consumption, shift register uses pulsed latch as an striking solution [8].

Thus the floating point addition/subtraction unit requires the implementation of an 8-bit reversible comparator, an 8-bit reversible subtractor, a 24-bit reversible shift register, a 24-bit reversible carry propagate generate adder, a 24-bit reversible subtractor, a 24-bit reversible comparator and a 32-bit reversible leading zero detector.
