A New Design of a 3 x 3 Reversible Circuit Based on a Nanoscale Quantum-Dot Cellular Automata
MetadataShow full item record
Quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) is the best-suggested nanotechnology for designing digital electronic circuits. It has a higher switching frequency, low-power expenditures, low area, high speed and higher scale integration. Recently, many types of research have been on the design of reversible logic gates. Nevertheless, a high demand exists for designing high-speed, high-performance and low-area QCA circuits. Reversible circuits have notably improved with developments in complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) and QCA technologies. In QCA systems, it is important to communicate with other circuits and reversible gates reliably. So, we have used efficient approaches for designing a 3 x 3 reversible circuit based on XOR gates. Also, the suggested circuits can be widely used in reversible and high-performance systems. The suggested architecture for the 3 x 3 reversible circuit in QCA is composed of 28 cells, occupying only 0.04 mu m(2). Compared to the state-of-the-art, shorter time, smaller areas, more operational frequency and better performance are the essential benefits of the suggested reversible gate design. Full simulations have been conducted with the utilization of QCADesigner software. Additionally, the proposed 3 x 3 gate has been schematized using two XOR gates.
