This paper presents the quasi-adiabatic logic for low power powered by two phase sinusoidal clock signal. The proposed logic called two phase adiabatic dynamic logic (2PADL) realizes the advantages of energy efficiency through the use of gate overdrive and reduced switching power. It has a single rail output and the proposed logic does not require the complementary input signals for any of its variables. The 2PADL logic is operated by two complementary clock signals acting as power supply. The validation of the proposed logic is carried out through practical circuits such as (i) sequential circuits using energy recovery technique suitable for memory circuits, (ii) an adiabatic carry look ahead adder (CLA) designed using 2PADL to study the speed performance and to prove its energy efficiency across a range of frequencies and (iii) a multiplier circuit using 2PADL compared against CMOS counterpart. The CLA adder is also implemented using the other static adiabatic logics, namely, quasi static energy recovery logic (QSERL), clocked CMOS adiabatic logic (CCAL) and conventional static CMOS logic to compare against 2PADL and validate its power advantages. The performance of the CCAL logic is tested for higher frequencies by implementing the widely presented CLA circuit. The result proves that the design is energy efficient and operates up to the frequency of 600 MHz. The simulation was carried out using industry standard Cadence® Virtuoso tool using 180[Formula: see text]nm technology library files.
