Abstract/Description

The continuous increment of classical computers' computational performance is driven to its limit. New ways are studied in order to avoid this fore-coming bottleneck and many answers are found into nature. An example is the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction which includes some fundamental and essential characteristics that attract chemists, biologists, and computer scientists. Interaction of excitation wave-fronts in BZ system, can be interpreted in terms of logical gates and applied in design of unconventional hardware components. Logic gates and other more complicated components are already proposed using different topologies and particular characteristics. In this study, the inherent parallelism and simplicity of Cellular Automata (CAs) modelling is combined with an Oregonator model of light-sensitive version of BZ reaction. The resulting parallel and computationally-inexpensive model has the ability to simulate a topology that can be considered as an one-bit full adder digital component towards the design of an Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU).
