Reversible logic has an alternate design technique to a conventional logic resulting in low power consumption and circuit delay. Comparators are a key element in most digital systems. In this project, 4-bit comparator based on priority encoder circuit is designed. Reversible logic gates performed the multiple operations in a single unit. This design consist mainly the feyaman gates. It is one type of reversible logic gates. The reversibility recovers bits loss from the designated input-output mapping and its applications have spread in various technologies like quantum computing nanotechnology and low power design. The 4-bit comparator using reversible gates to reduce optimization parameters like number of constant inputs, garbage outputs and quantum cost is verified by using Xilinx ISE software.
