dc.description.abstractUltra-low-power circuits are becoming more desirable due to growing portable device markets and they are also becoming more interesting and applicable today in biomedical, pharmacy and sensor networking applications because of the nano-metric scaling and CMOS reliability improvements. In this thesis, three main achievements are presented in ultra-low-power adders. First, a new majority function algorithm for carry and the sum generation is presented. Then with this algorithm and implied new architecture, we achieved a circuit with 75mV supply voltage operation. Last but not least, a 64 bit current-mode majority-function adder based on the new architecture and algorithm is successfully tested at 75mV supply voltage. The circuit consumed 4.5nW or 3.8pJ in one of the worst conditions.en
