Arithmetic-Logic Single-Electron Nanocircuits
Keywords:quantum cellular automata, single-electron tehnology, majority element, computer-aided design, arithmetic-logic devices, nanocircuits
Computer–added design of single-electron nanoelectronic circuits on quantum majority components has been implemented. Proposed methods of building logic-arithmetic computing devices of the combinational type, which implement an almost complete system of logical functions in both the majority and Boolean bases. Quantum cellular automata is a technology that emerged two decades ago, in which the values of logical states correspond to the positions of individual electrons. Quantum cells are used to construct logic nanoelements and arithmetic nanodevices. The work is dedicated to the computer design of modern logic and arithmetic devices, which include universal majority elements. In the work, quantum nano-devices are modeled using QCADesiner automated design system.
