Addition is one of the basic arithmetic operations. Low power adders are used to reduce the overall power consumption of micro-electronic systems. The role of adders are important in almost all filed .With the help of low power adders , all the other systems which make use of adders may dissipate less power. This project presents a detailed comparison between the full adders designed using gates and different styles of full adder designed using transistors. This project focus mainly on the comparisons among conventional CMOS adder, transmission gate adder, square root based adder, static energy recovery adder . All the simulation results are done using Digital Schematic editor (DSCH) and the functionality is verified using the layout editor tool, MICROWIND. The sole objective of this project to conclude with a better estimate and ease in selecting a low power consuming adders.
