This paper is a preliminary investigation in implementing asynchronous QDI logic in molecular nano-electronics, taking into account the restricted geometry, the lack of control on transistor strengths, the high timing variations. We show that the main building blocks of QDI logic can be successfully implemented; we illustrate the approach with the layout of an adder stage. The proposed techniques to improve the reliability of QDI apply to nano-CMOS as well.
