QCA is the trending technologies for designing less hardware and low power consumed circuits measured in Nano-scale. These QCA cells are accustomed to construct combinational and sequential circuits. In this paper we presented a design for developing a basic arithmetic unit called full adder using Quantum cellular automata. The new submitted FA consists fewer amounts of quantum cells and delay also minimizes, when compared with the existing architecture.
