Due to many random factors from thermal fluctuations to wave interference, computation perfection in nanoICs is hard to achieve. Defects and faults arise from noise susceptibility of nanoICs which leads to unreliable results. A probabilistic computational model is needed to cope with such errors and to achieve more reliable computations. The main purpose of this paper is to present a new architecture for designing noise-tolerant Quantum-dot Cellular Automata (QCA) nanocircuits.
