ABSTRACT
The MOS transistor technology is well studied and found in billions of devices, however, there are several problems which force us to search for an alternative: • The major problem - we almost reached the limits of current technology. Transistors are already being fabricated in atomic scale and soon we will be unable to make them any smaller. • Each transistor device has switching and propagation delays since it is essentially a composition of resistors an capacitors. • Current digital devices use CMOS based Boolean circuits (BCs) where one transistor in gate I triggers the transistors of the next gate in the BC and the calculation speed is limited by BC's depth.
