Re-Programmable Logic Array for Logic Design and Its Reliability Analysis in QCA
Quantum dot cellular automaton is now considered as a strong alternative of Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) technology. In this paper, we demonstrate an empirical work for implementing Quantum dot Cellular Automata (QCA) based Re-Programmable two variables Re-programmable logic array. It is fully reprogrammable by exploiting the fact of bidirectional nature of QCA. AND or OR logic. In our proposal, we made a different aspect of designing PLA. We made a control word, which must be for both the plane i.e. AND plane and OR plane. The OR plane or AND plane is configured with Majority voter and orthogonal fully populated tile. The PLA cell designed for two variables PLA, Reprogrammable by means of altering control Inputs. In our proposal we can program AND plane as well as OR plane with the control word. The reliability of this Re-PLA is reported.
