The ALU is one of the most fundamental operational units in any processor. The ALU can be characterized as the combinational unit, which is utilized to play out its intelligence and number juggling units. This paper presents a low power rapid Arithmetic Logic Unit (ALU) in 14 nm technology utilizing Multi-limit voltage semiconductor logic and Gate Diffusion Input procedure. Its presentation is contrasted and regular CMOS method. The reproduced outcomes uncovered better execution attributes of different number juggling and logic elements of a 1-piece ALU utilizing VTV and GDI procedures contrasted with customary CMOS strategy. This procedure permits diminishing power scattering and deferral while keeping up the low intricacy of logic design.
