In this paper the design and simulation of a single-electron 2-4 decoder based on NAND gates is presented. The simulation was made using a Monte-Carlo based tool. The results confirmed that the circuit was behaving as a 2-4 decoder. The stability plot and the free energy history diagrams offer detailed analysis of the circuit. The results were compared to similar circuits reported in the literature and the advantages and disadvantages of this design were identified.
