Cellular Genetic Algorithms (cGAs) exhibit a natural parallelism that makes them interesting candidates for hardware implementation, as several processing elements can operate simultaneously on subpopulations shared among them. This paper presents a scalable architecture for a cGA, suitable for FPGA implementation. A regular array of custom designed processing elements (PEs) works on a population of solutions that is spread into dual-port memory blocks locally shared by adjacent PEs. A… CONTINUE READING
