The paper presents a novel, transistor level, implementation of selected fuzzy set operators suitable for fuzzy control systems realized in low-power hardware. We propose a fully digital, asynchronous realization of basic fuzzy logic (FL) functions, such as the bounded sum, bounded difference, bounded product, bounded complement, fuzzy logic union (MAX) and fuzzy logic intersection (MIN). All of the proposed operators has been implemented in the CMOS TSMC 180nm Technology and verified by means of transistor level simulations in Hspice environment. The proposed structures of the FL functions can easily be scaled to any signal resolutions.
