This paper presents an efficient graph-based evolutionary optimization technique called Evolutionary Graph Generation (EGG) and its extension to a parallel version. A new version of parallel EGG system is based on a coarse-grained model of parallel processing and can synthesize heterogeneous networks of various different components efficiently. The potential capability of parallel EGG system is demonstrated through the design of current-mode logic circuits.
