Abstract

This paper presents a novel graph-based evolutionary optimization technique called Evolutionary Graph Generation (EGG), and its application to the transistor-level design of analog circuits. The evolution process of EGG can be accelerated by a simple operation, called "transmigration", which is to import previously generated solutions for creating advanced solutions. In this paper, we demonstrate the potential of EGG with transmigration capability through an experimental synthesis of current mirror circuits.
