Abstract

Binary logic circuits are limited by the requirement of interconnections. A feasible solution is to transmit more information over a signal line and utilizing multiple-valued logic (MVL). This paper presents a novel high performance quaternary full adder cell based on carbon nanotube field effect transistor (CNTFET). The proposed Quaternary full adder is designed in multiple valued voltage mode. CNTFET is a promising candidate for replacing MOSFET with some useful properties, such as the capability of having the desired threshold voltage by regulating the diameters of the nanotubes, which make them very appropriate for voltage mode multiple threshold circuits design. The proposed circuit is examined, using Synopsys HSPICE with the standard 32 nm CNTFET technology with different temperatures and supply voltages.
