  abstract =     "We introduce an automated circuit design system for
                 the evolution and subsequent invention of CMOS
                 amplifiers. The proposed system relies on a mix of
                 genetic programming and a new topology-independent
                 design optimization method referred to as current-flow
                 analysis. Genetic programming evolves new circuit
                 topologies from the collection of primitive devices and
                 basic building blocks. Current-flow analysis screens
                 and corrects circuits using topology-independent design
                 rules. Experimental results show a promising
                 improvement on the design of operational amplifiers
                 that make the automated analog design environment using
                 genetic programming a lot more practical.",
