The design of capacitive single-electron transistors (C-SETs) based two-input multiplexer is reported in this paper. Voltage state logic is employed to design the circuit and SIMON 2.0 was used for simulation. Truth table of the designed two input multiplexer was verified for all the possible input vectors. Additionally, the stability of the circuit was checked by plotting stability and free energy history diagrams. The average power consumtion of the designed circuit is ~31.4 PicoWatts.
