High-level synthesis of digital microfluidic biochips
Krishnendu Chakrabarty, Fei Su
Article No.: 1
DOI: 10.1145/1324177.1324178

Microfluidic biochips offer a promising platform for massively parallel DNA analysis, automated drug discovery, and real-time biomolecular recognition. Current techniques for full-custom design of droplet-based “digital” biochips do...

Arithmetic on a distributed-memory quantum multicomputer
Kae Nemoto, Rodney Van Meter, W. J. Munro, Kohei M. Itoh
Article No.: 2
DOI: 10.1145/1324177.1324179

We evaluate the performance of quantum arithmetic algorithms run on a distributed quantum computer (a quantum multicomputer). We vary the node capacity and I/O capabilities, and the network topology. The tradeoff of choosing between gates executed...

A model for computing and energy dissipation of molecular QCA devices and circuits
Xiaojun Ma, Jing Huang, Fabrizio Lombardi
Article No.: 3
DOI: 10.1145/1324177.1324180

Quantum-dot Cellular Automata is an emerging technology that offers significant improvements over CMOS. Recently QCA has been advocated as a technology for implementing reversible computing. However, existing tools for QCA design and evaluation...

Synthesis of reversible sequential elements
Min-Lun Chuang, Chun-Yao Wang
Article No.: 4
DOI: 10.1145/1324177.1324181

To construct a reversible sequential circuit, reversible sequential elements are required. This work presents novel designs of reversible sequential elements such as the D latch, JK latch, and T latch. Based on these reversible latches, we...
