عنوان : Design Exploration and Application of Reversible Circuits in Emerging Technologies
زبان : انگلیسی
The reversible logic has promising applications in emerging computing paradigms, such as quantum computing, quantum dot cellular automata, optical computing, etc. In reversible logic gates, there is a unique one-to-one mapping between the inputs and outputs. To generate a useful gate function, the reversible gates require some constant ancillary inputs called ancilla inputs. Also to maintain the reversibility of the circuits some additional unused outputs are required that are referred to as the garbage outputs. The number of ancilla inputs, the number of garbage outputs and quantum cost plays an important role in the evaluation of reversible circuits. Thus minimizing these parameters are important for designing an efficient reversible circuit. Reversible circuits are of highest interest in optical computing, quantum dot cellular automata and quantum computing. The quantum gates perform an elementary unitary operation on one, two or more two-state quantum systems called qubits. Any unitary operation is reversible in nature, and hence, quantum networks are also reversible, to conclude the quantum computers must be built from reversible logic components.
