In this paper, we propose an alternative heterostructure device geometry to realize a semiconductor quantum cellular automata (QCA) cell. This device, called a split current quantum cellular automata (SCQCA) cell, has some attractive features which may enable the fabrication and circuit realization of QCA systems with current fabrication technologies. We present the device model and simulation results by incorporating this model in QCADesigner, a design and simulation tool for QCA. The simulations consist of the two cell interaction, showing the nonlinear cell-cell response function, a short wire, as well as the majority gate created with a cross pattern of five QCA cells.
