  abstract =     "The objective of the paper is to introduce a new
                 approach to the evolutionary design of digital circuits
                 conducted directly at transistor level. In order to
                 improve the time consuming evaluation of candidate
                 solutions, a discrete event-driven simulator was
                 introduced. The proposed simulator operates on multiple
                 logic levels to achieve reasonable trade-off between
                 performance and precision. A suitable level of
                 abstraction reflecting the behaviour of real MOSFET
                 transistors is used to minimise the production of
                 incorrectly working circuits. The proposed approach is
                 evaluated in the evolution of basic logic circuits
                 having more than 20 transistors. The goal of the
                 evolutionary algorithm is to design a circuit having
                 the minimal number of transistors and exhibiting the
                 minimal delay. In addition to that, various parameter
                 settings are investigated to increase the success rate
                 of the evolutionary design.",
