Robustness Study of Muller C-element

Conference paper
Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS, volume 836)


This paper analyses the static implementation of Muller C-element based on CNFET and MOSFET. Muller C-element is a state holding circuit in which the output is equal to that of input if both the inputs are similar else it holds the previous state [1]. We are comparing the performance of CNFET based circuit to that of MOSFET based circuit because of the known fact that CNFET has high channel capacity and better gate capacitance versus voltage characteristics. PVT variation of the circuit is done by using Monte Carlo analysis at 32-nm technology node for CNFET whereas MOSFET at 22-nm technology node on HSPICE [2]. The Muller C-element is simulated at nominal supply voltage 0.95 V with a ±10% variation in it [3]. Impact of temperature variation on ON-current (ON-current variability) is analyzed by varying the temperature from −50 °C to 80 °C (−50 °C to 150 °C) [4].
