QCA Circuits for Robust Coplanar Crossing
In this paper, different circuits of Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) are proposed for the so-called coplanar crossing. Coplanar crossing is one of the most interesting features of QCA because it allows for mono-layered interconnected circuits, whereas CMOS technology needs different levels of metalization. However, the characteristics of the coplanar crossing make it prone to malfunction due to thermal noise or defects. The proposed circuits exploit the majority voting properties of QCA to allow a robust crossing of wires on the Cartesian plane. This is accomplished using enlarged lines and voting. A Bayesian Network (BN) based simulator is utilized for evaluation; results are provided to assess robustness in the presence of cell defects and thermal effects. The BN simulator provides fast and reliable computation of the signal polarization versus normalized temperature. Simulation of the wire crossing circuits at different operating temperatures is provided with respect to defects...
