Design & Study of a Low Power High Speed Full Adder Using GDI Multiplexer


This paper proposes a new method for implementing a low power full adder by means of a set of Gate Diffusion Input (GDI) cell based multiplexers. Full adder is a very common example of combinational circuits and is used widely in Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs). It is always advantageous to have low power action for the sub components used in VLSI chips. The explored technique of realization achieves a low power high speed design for a widely used subcomponent-full adder. Simulated outcome using state-of-art simulation tool shows finer behavioral performance of the projected method over general CMOS based full adder. Power, speed and area comparison between conventional and proposed full adder is also presented.
