  abstract =     "The aim of the paper is to introduce a new parallel
                 approach to evolutionary optimization of digital
                 circuits described on transistor level. The
                 evolutionary optimization is guided by the fitness
                 function employing a simulator of candidate circuits. A
                 new discrete simulator was introduced to achieve a good
                 trade-off between precision and cost of circuit
                 evaluations. The simulator is based on event-driven
                 simulation. Precise numeric SPICE simulator is
                 regularly called to validate simulation results. To
                 increase the speed of evolution, three parallel
                 approaches were proposed: (i) thread level parallelism,
                 (ii) multiple computing nodes which collectively
                 communicate and distribute the best solution, and (iii)
                 client-server architecture eliminating a limited count
                 of SPICE simulator instances.",
