Requirement of high bit rate circuits is increasing day by day, for achieving this we can use all optical processing digital circuits. These circuits are cost efficient and having high speed processing. The basic component for all-optical processing is optical transistor, which can be designed using all-optical logic gates. Many higher level circuits such as adders, Flip-flops, counters can be designed by utilizing these logic gates. In this paper, the Full Adder is proposed which utilizes dispersion managed soliton pulses as input by cross gain modulation of Semiconductor amplifier is simulated at 100 Gb/s. The circuit employs two all-optical XOR and AND gates and one OR gate
