English title
Methods of polymorphic digital circuit design

computer science; digital circuit design; evolutionary algorithm


This is a multidisciplinary project of artificial intelligence and microelectronics in a new area of research called polymorphic electronics. Polymorphic circuits are circuits that are able to implement various useful functions in various environments (e.g. to implement addition at a given temperature and multiplication at another temperature). However, no functional switch is used; they are multifunctional in principle. The objective of this project is to propose methods for routine designing of nontrivial polymorphic digital circuits and to utilize polymorphic circuits in real-world applications whose implementation is impossible or difficult by means of conventional methods. Polymorphic gates will be considered as basic building blocks for implementation of polymorphic circuits. New evolutionary-based design methods will be developed operating at the polymorphic gate level. We will design and implement an integrated circuit consisting of polymorphic gates. This project was formulated on the basis of our long-term experience in evolutionary electronics and digital circuit design.
