We have demonstrated the possibility of applying a modified genetic algorithm (GADO) to completely automate the design of a cell given only a behavioral description and optimization criteria such as power, area, speed or their combination. GADO maintains a population of potential standard cell designs. The designs are evaluated by (1) internal rules (2… CONTINUE READING
