This paper proposes a genetic programming method to synthesize passive filter circuits. This method allows both the circuit topology and the component values to be evolved simultaneously. Experiments show that this method is fast and capable of generating circuits which are more economical than those generated by traditional design approaches. In addition, we take into account practical design considerations at high-frequency applications, where the component values are frequency-dependent and restricted to some discrete values. Experimental results show that our method can effectively generate not only compliant but also economical circuits for practical design tasks.
