Complex numbers play important role in various engineering applications. To represent these numbers efficiently for storage and manipulation, a (-1+j)-base complex binary number system (CBNS) has been proposed in the literature. In this paper, designs of nibble-size arithmetic circuits (adder, subtractor, multiplier, divider) have been presented. These circuits can be incorporated within von Neumann and associative dataflow processors to achieve higher performance in both sequential and parallel computing paradigms.
