In the last decades, great achievements have been made in the development of computing machines. However, due to exponential growth of transistor density and in particular due to tremendously increasing power consumption, researchers expect that "Conventional Technologies" like Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor will reach their limits in near future. To further satisfy the needs for more computational power, speed, less size etc. alternatives are needed. Reversible Computation is the

Reversible Computation is emerging as a promising solution and likely to work on extremely low power technologies and offer high speed computations. The reversibility retains the capability to retrieve the input data from output and minimizes heat dissipation. As migration to new technology leave a lot of work done in current technology will make the acceptability difficult. One side familiarly with new technology and other side transformation of old circuit designs to new technology will pose a challenge to designers. A need for convertibility of irreversible circuit to reversible circuit was felt that can make a quick start and keep the development on track. In this dissertation a logic circuit design entry based on binary logic system has been taken up that can provide the ease of circuit design in binary logic system and output as reversible circuit. Entire environment is GUI based and easy to learn user friendly. This tool offers editing, storage and conversion into reversible facility.
