Accelerating a genetic algorithm (GA) by implementing it in a reconfigurable field programm-able gate array (FPGA) is described. The implemented GA features: random parent selection, which conserves selection circuitry; a steady-state memory model, which conserves chip area; survival of fitter child chromosomes over their less-fit parent chromosomes, which(More)
Entire systems embedded in a chip and consistingof a processor, memory, and system-specific peripheral hardwareare now commonly contained in commodity electronicdevices. Cost minimization of these systems is of paramounteconomic importance to manufactures of these devices. Byemploying a variable configuration processor in conjunctionwith a multi-precision(More)
