By researching the adiabatic circuits, domino circuits and multi-valued circuits, the scheme of a low-power and high-speed ternary gate circuit was proposed. First, the adiabatic domino circuit was improved by using two-phase overlapping clocks to guarantee energy recovery to the full and enhance reliability of the circuit. Then, the basic structure of ternary gate circuit was designed based on the NDL (1-of-N domino logic) and MDD (Multi-valued Decision Diagrams). Finally, the simulation result of PSPICE show that the logical function of the circuit was correct and the energy consumption was 25% less than the ordinary domino counterpart.
