In this study, we present a threshold logic gate based implementation of a (7, 3) counter using Singleelectron Transistor (SET) and Mtal-oxide-Semiconductor (MOS) transistor. The unique properties of the SET/MOS hybrid circuit are exploited in the realization of power and area efficient threshold logic gates. It is merely composed of three threshold logic gates and two inverters. The total device count is substantially reduced to 13, i.e. 5 PMOS transistors, 5 NMOS transistors, and 3 SETs, while the conventional Boolean logic gate based (7, 3) counter designed only by MOS transistors consumes nearly 194 devices. Moreover, the power consumption of the proposed (7, 3) counter is only 6.92 nW. The correctness of the proposed circuit is verified through HSPICE simulation. Simulation results show that the proposed (7, 3) counter is superior to the Boolean logic gate based CMOS one in terms of circuit complexity and area efficiency. These features make the proposed (7, 3) counter very attractive in the applications of multiplier circuits and other high density and high performance digital circuits.
