Multiple-Valued Logic systems present significant improvements in terms of energy consumption over binary logic systems. This paper proposes new ternary combinational digital circuits that reduce energy consumption in low-power nano-scale embedded systems and Internet of Thing (IoT) devices to save their battery consumption. The 32 nm CNTFET-based ternary half adder (THA) and multiplier (TMUL) circuits use novel ternary unary operator circuits and implement two power supplies Vdd and Vdd/2 without using any ternary decoders, basic logic gates, or encoders to minimize the number of used transistors and improve the energy efficiency. Extensive simulations (over 160) of the proposed designs in terms of PVT (Process, Voltage, Temperature) variations, noise effect, and scalability studies, along with several benchmark designs using HSPICE simulator, prove the significance of the proposed circuits to decrease the power-delay product (PDP), improve the robustness to process variations, and the noise tolerance. The obtained results show the superiority of the designs in a reduction between 32% and 74% in transistors count and between 18% and 99% in PDP compared to the most recent works.
