  abstract =     "Evolutionary algorithms are an alternative option to
                 the Boolean synthesis due to that they allow one to
                 create hardware structures that would not be able to be
                 obtained with other techniques. This paper shows a
                 parallel genetic programming (PGP) Boolean synthesis
                 implementation based on a cluster of FPGAs that takes
                 full advantage of parallel programming and
                 hardware/software co-design techniques. The performance
                 of our cluster of FPGAs implementation has been
                 compared with an HPC implementation. The experimental
                 results have shown an excellent behaviour in terms of
                 speed up (up to x500) and in terms of solving the
                 scalability problems of this algorithms present in
                 previous works.",
