English title
Advanced Methods for Evolutionary Design of Complex Digital Circuits

Evolutionary circuit design, evolvable hardware, field programmable gate array, co-evolution


The evolutionary circuit design is the use of bio-inspired search algorithms for automated synthesis and optimization of electronic circuits. Although many interesting results have been obtained using the evolutionary design, the scalability problem is still considered as the most significant problem of the method. In this project, we propose and advocate new approaches to evolutionary circuit design that will enable us to eliminate the scalability problem and thus construct and optimize complex digital circuits and adaptive hardware systems in field programmable gate arrays (FPGA). The following results are projected: (1) New functional equivalence checking algorithms for accelerating the fitness calculation. (2) New multiobjective and co-evolutionary design algorithms. (3) Routine design and optimization of complex circuits by means of the proposed tools. (4) New architectures of FPGA-based evolvable hardware systems.
