Abstract
In this paper, an evolutionary approach is used to design multiple constant multipliers (MCMs). As these circuits can be composed
of adders, subtractors and shifters, they perform a linear transform. An important consequence is that only a single input value is sufficient to completely evaluate a candidate circuit independently of its size and the bit width of the datapath. Proposed method is able to compete with well-optimized heuristics in particular problem instances. This paper also deals with a hardware acceleration of the method in FPGA which provides the speedup of two orders of magnitude in comparison
with a conventional PC.
