Abstract
Important progress has been made recently in the prototyping of reversible (quantum) digital circuits, proving that digital reversible dual-line pass-transistor technology may be used for applications in reversible linear computation. This raises new questions regarding the compatibility of this new technology with existing standard switching CMOS technology. The greatest difficulty is brought by the difference of signal shape used by the two technologies. Whereas standard switching CMOS circuits make use of rectangular pulses, dual-line pass-transistor reversible circuits use adiabatic triangular or trapezoidal ones. This work proposes a simple technical solution that allows interfacing digital reversible pass-transistor with conventional CMOS switching technology represented here by a Xilinx FPGA embedded on a commercial Spartan-3E board. All the proposed solutions have successfully been tested, allowing the FPGA to practically drive a reversible chip.
