This paper presents a new evolutionary optimization kernel applied to the automatic synthesis of high performance analog and mixed-signal ICs. This enhanced evolutionary approach is based on a modified genetic algorithm with self adaptive parameters tailored to efficiently control the optimization process. Particularly, the benefits introduced by self adaptive parameters consist of, first, reducing the problem complexity by using a grid with an adaptive resolution or step to describe the search… CONTINUE READING
