majority gate

majority gate

[mə′jär·əd·ē ′gāt]
(computer science)
A logic circuit which has one output and several inputs, and whose output is energized only if a majority of its inputs are energized. Also known as majority element; majority logic.

These designs have been implemented using three three-input majority gates in different ways with different propagation delay and consumed cells according to the form of majority gate's concatenation.
The main building block of QCA circuits is majority gate and consequently the other logic circuits are implemented based on majority gate networks.
Its functions are limited to three: (i) sending the preprocessed raw data to high-level processor, (ii) counting the number of the active majority gates (the active means that the output of a majority gate is 1), and (iii) generating the approximate sigmoid function for postprocessing based on artificial neural network.
The timing constraint on a QCA majority gate is that all three inputs are expected to reach the device cell (central cell) at the same time in order to have fair voting.
