—Multivalued logic is an extension of Boolean algebra with high radix approaches and is preferable over conventional binary logic operations for reduction in interconnection cost, chip area both on-chip and between chips and high information handing capability. This paper includes the design of elementary combinational quaternary operators that have sufficient representative capability to efficiently implement in intricate quaternary arithmetic circuits. Design of several combinational logic circuits have been presented which can function individually and in logic blocks for designing further complex circuits resulting in a reduction of circuit complexity and better speed processing in integrated circuit technology.
