Abstract- In this paper, the use of Simulated Evolution
(SimE) Algorithm in the design of digital logic circuits is
proposed. SimE algorithm consists of three steps: eval-
uation, selection and allocation. Two goodness measures
are designed to guide the selection and allocation opera-
tions of SimE. Area, power and delay are considered in
the optimization of circuits. Results obtained by SimE
algorithm are compared to those obtained by Genetic
Algorithm (GA).
1 Introduction
Design is usually considered to be an activity requiring con-
siderable human creativity and knowledge. Even the defini-
tion of the term design itself is quite elusive, since it can be
interpreted in several different ways depending on the task
to be performed [10].
