The objective of the paper is to introduce a new approach to the evolutionary design of digital circuits conducted directly at transistor level. In order to improve the time consuming evaluation of candidate solutions, a discrete event-driven simulator was introduced. The proposed simulator operates on multiple logic levels to achieve reasonable trade-off between performance and precision. A suitable level of abstraction reflecting the behavior of real MOSFET transistors is utilized to minimize the production of incorrectly working circuits. The proposed approach is evaluated in the evolution of basic logic circuits having more than 20 transistors. The goal of the evolutionary algorithm is to design a circuit having the minimal number of transistors and exhibiting the minimal delay. In addition to that, various parameter settings are investigated to increase the successrate of the evolutionary design.
