Firstly, we use evolutionary algorithm (EA) to implement states simplification and obtain near-optimal state assignment, which requires few logic gates and wires. Then, EHW evolves a set of high performing circuits and uses data mining method to find frequently evolved blocks (a component of logic gates) from these circuits in its pre-evolution stage. Frequently evolved blocks would be re-used in functional and terminals set for evolving better circuits. EHW has a faster convergence so that the circuit with small complexity could be evolved. Auto starting ability of circuits would also be test by the fitness function of EHW. Finally, two sequence detectors, two module counters, and ISCAS'89 circuit are used as the proof for our evolutionary design approach. Simulation results of experiments are given, and our evolutionary algorithm is shown to be better than other methods in terms of convergence time, success rate, and maximum fitness across generations.", notes = "GA, GP, CGP, ECGP, ADFs, increment evolution WCCI 2012.
