Evolutionary approach to electronic circuit design demonstrated by @utwenteEN research team. ht…

The team has moved away from conventionally designed circuits, using instead an approach that resembles those found in nature. By using such a ‘designless’ approach, the team says costly design mistakes can be avoided. An artificial evolution approach is said to take less than an hour. By applying electrical signals, a network can be configured into 16 different logical gates, with the approach working around – or even taking advantage of – possible material defects that could be fatal in conventional electronics. A schematic of a nanoparticle network, about 200nm in diameter, is shown in the image. By applying electrical signals at the electrodes (yellow) and using an artificial evolution technique, this disordered network of gold nanoparticles can be configured into useful electronic circuits. The team says it is the first time this approach has been used to create elect...
