  abstract =     "Since the early 1990's researchers have begun to apply
                 evolutionary algorithms to design electronic circuits.
                 Nowadays it is evident that the evolutionary design
                 approach can automatically create efficient electronic
                 circuits in many domains. This tutorial surveys
                 fundamental concepts of evolutionary circuit design. It
                 introduces relevant search algorithms and basics of
                 digital circuit design principles. Several case studies
                 will be presented to demonstrate strength and weakness
                 of the method, including evolutionary synthesis of
                 gate-level circuits, image filter evolution in FPGA and
                 evolution of benchmark circuits for evaluation of
                 testability analysis methods. FPGAs will be presented
                 as accelerators for evolutionary circuit design and
                 circuit adaptation. Finally, it will be shown how to
                 cope with the so-called scalability problem of
                 evolutionary design which has been identified as the
                 most important problem from the point of view of
