When exploring computing elements made from technologies other than complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor, it is imperative to investigate circuits and systems assuming realistic physical implementation constraints. This paper looks at molecular quantum-dot cellular automata (QCA) devices within this context. With molecular QCA, physical coplanar wire crossings may be very difficult to fabricate in the near to midterm. Here, we consider how this will affect interconnect. We introduce a novel… CONTINUE READING
