A hybrid gate structure is described enabling multiple valued logic (MVL) combinational functions to be implemented using a single building block. In particular, a three-input ternary universal gate (U-gate) is considered having an equivalent functional capability of 13 T-gates. Ease of MVL system design and the prospect of hybrid ASIC implementation are noted as potential benefits justifying increased primitive module complexity.
