  abstract =     "This paper presents MOJITO, a system which optimises
                 across thousands of analog circuit topologies
                 simultaneously, and returns a set of sized topologies
                 that collectively provide a performance tradeoff.
                 MOJITO defines a space of possible topologies as a
                 hierarchically organised combination of trusted analog
                 building blocks. To minimise the setup burden: no
                 topology selection rules or abstract behaviours need to
                 be specified, and performance calculations are
                 SPICE-based. The search algorithm is a novel
                 multi-objective evolutionary algorithm that uses an
                 age-layered population structure to balance exploration
                 vs. exploitation. Results are shown for a space having
                 3528 one- and two-stage operational amplifier
