Original Abstract

Polymorphic electronics (polytronics) can be seen as a novel approach to the design of electronic circuits which are able to change their function with respect to the external conditions (temperature, power supply voltage, external voltage, light, etc.). Digital polymorphic circuits often consist of multifunctional gates. Bifunctional gates with NAND and NOR function seem to be most useful especially when an evolutionary design approach is used. In the paper, all known NAND/NOR gates are compared and new gates are also proposed. Main application domains of these gates are introduced.

Czech abstract

Polymorfní elektronika (polytronika) je nový přístup k návrhu elektronických obvodů, které mohou měnit svoji funkci v závislosti na vnějších podmínkách (teplota, napětí zdroje, externí signál, světlo, atd.). Digitální polymorfní obvody často sestávají z multifunkčních hradel. Dvojfunkční hradla s funkcemi NAND a NOR se zdají být nejužitečnějšími z nich, zejména pak při využití evolučního návrhu. V článku jsou popsána všechna dosud známá NAND/NOR hradla a jsou mezi sebou porovnána. Na základě výsledků analýzy je pak navrženo nové hradlo. Jsou též představeny hlavní směry aplikací.
