Reversible Logic Based Feynman Gate Using Quantum Dot Cellular Automata Technology

Authors(2) :-J. Sree Bhuvaneswari Bai, Dr. C. Chandra Sekhar

Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) is a new technology for development of logic circuits based on nanotechnology, and it is an one of the alternative for designing high performance computing over existing CMOS technology. The basic logic in QCA does not use voltage level for logic representation rather it represent binary state by polarization of electrons on the Quantum Cell which is basic building block of QCA. Feynman gate can be categorized as a unique feature to identify a person. Irreversible technology experiences some difficulties like higher dissipated heat. Thus reversible logic is essential where dissipation of heat will be almost negligible. A Reversible circuit using Feynman gate has been proposed in this paper and implemented with QCA. Both the theoretical values and the simulation results are matched which justifies the authenticity of the proposed circuits design. Implementation and testing of the circuit are achieved using QCAD designer tool.
