Abstract

Genetic algorithms, robust search tools based on biological selection and reproduction, are used to find efficient planar inductor geometries, which meet the specifications of inductance value and quality factor and require a small chip area. We consider a specific example using a standard digital CMOS process with 6 layers of metal.
