Ultra Low Power Reversible Arithmetic Processor Based on Quantum Dot
Quantum dot Cellular Automata (QCA) may be viewed as the potential
digital logic design alternative to supplant the current CMOS
Technology. The logical design is based on the polarization of electrons
to transfer information which results in a huge improved performance
metric in terms of speed, power & area. This paper demonstrates a
Reversible Arithmetic Processor (RAP) architecture design with
Reversible Multiplexer (RM) and Reversible Functional Gate (RFG) in QCA.
The QCA Designer-E simulation tool has been used to design and verify
all the proposed architecture and the energy dissipation has been
simulated using a coherent vector energy engine setup. The total and
average energy dissipation per cycle of our proposed RAP using QCA are
3 . 9 1 × 1 0 − 1 ev and 3 . 5 6 × 1 0 − 2 ev respectively.
Regarding cell count, area, latency, and energy dissipation, the
proposed architecture beats out the existing architecture.
