Abstract: Multiple-valued logic circuits can reduce the number of operations necessary to implement a particular mathematical function and further have an advantage in terms of reduced area. Implementable CNTFET circuits have operational characteristics to approach the advantage of using MVL. Conventional nanotube diameters and using CNTFET characteristics has attracted considerable attention in the ternary logic family designs. In order to describe all ternary functions, we have achieved a new CNTFET circuit design in the universal form. In this design we have neither exclusive design problems nor mathematical equations to achieve the appropriate combination of the basic operations in the MVL fields.
