Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

Quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) is a modern technology, which has higher speed, lower power consumption, higher density, and lower complexity than conventional technologies, such as CMOS. Moreover, the gate diffusion input (GDI) technique has been successful in reducing complexity, area, and energy consumption in low-power circuit designs. In this technique, a wide range of complex logic functions can be implemented using only two transistors as the main block. In this study, a QCA-based GDI block is proposed using only 11 cells as a standard design unit that can be used to implement basic functions such as AND, OR, MUX, BUFFER, NOT and XOR in digital circuits. QCADesigner simulations of the functions in 18 nm technology indicate the superior performance of the proposed block with only one clock cycle delay in performing the operations. Moreover, the power consumption analysis of the designed circuits is performed using QCADesigner. The advantages of the proposed circuit compared to previous designs are 31% reduction in cell count, 50% smaller surface area, and 17% reduction in total energy loss.
