Circuits with transistors using independently controlled gates have been proposed to reduce the number of transistors and to increase the logic density per area. So far only small building blocks have been presented. This paper investigates for the first time the use of independent double gate transistors in 16 bit ripple carry and parallel prefix adders. New adder circuits and the trade-off between area reduction, delay and power consumption are presented. Area and transistor count reduction… CONTINUE READING
