On Design and Testing of Combinational Circuits based on Quantum Cellular Automata


  1. Louisiana state University, Baton Rouge, USA


Quantum Cellular Automata (QCA) present one of the many emerging computational nanotechnology paradigms.? It uses the arrangements of individual electrons, instead of currents and voltages, to encode binary information.? Note a QCA cell consists of four quantum dots located at the corners of a square. This tutorial paper provides an introductory material on the design and testing of combinational logic using a QCA based majority gate.? The objective is to create an interest among readers of IJPE in the area of QCA and testing of combinational circuits.
