This paper presents a ternary (4:2) compressor, which is an important component in multiplication. However, the structure differs from the binary counterpart since the ternary model does not require carry signals. The method of capacitive threshold logic (CTL) is used to achieve the output signals directly. Unlike the previously presented similar structure, the entire capacitor network is divided into two parts. This segregation results in higher reliability and robustness against unwanted
