Multiplier is the basic and the key element used in many Digital Signal Processing applications, arithmetic operations, in image processing applications such as FFT (fast fourier transform), convolution, correlation etc. This paper presents a simplified and efficient method of multiplication using vedic mathematics. Vedic mathematics is the name given to the ancient Indian system of mathematics and is based on mental calculations. Urdhva Triyakbhyam sutra of vedic multiplication is found to be the most efficient sutra of vedic multiplication among its all 16 sutras. The aim of this paper is to implement a simpler and high speed vedic multiplier by using Urdhva Triyakbhyam sutra efficiently. Synthesis has been done using Xilinx ISE 9.2i simulator using VHDL language
