Keywords: Universal Shift Register (USR), Modified Gate Diffusion Input (mGDI) Technique, Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS), Low Power and Area, Tanner Eda Tool


Technology is growing at a faster rate after the evolution of VLSI, which mainly focuses on three major criteria-speed, area and power. All these criteria determine the compactness of a product in order to produce an efficient output at a higher rate by consuming less power. To achieve the above-mentioned factors, an efficient 8-bit Universal Shift Register (USR) has been designed using modified Gate Diffusion Input (mGDI) technique. The results have been simulated using the TANNER EDA tool and found to contribute for low power and area.
