Optimal digital circuit design could be very beneficial for reducing the expenses of electronic devices. But since it is a complicated problem in general, utilization of sophisticated algorithm for this task seems necessary. In this paper a new method based on combining particle swarm optimization, genetic algorithm and chaotic search is proposed for digital circuit design. The inclusion of wiring minimization in objective function is also proposed and investigated.
Keywords: Digital Circuits, Particle Swarm Optimization, Genetic Algorithm, Chaotic Local Search, Wiring Minimization.
