A novel self-adaptive Circuit design technique based on evolvable hardware
Since traditional fault tolerance methods of electronic systems are based on redundant fault tolerance technique, and their structures are fixed when circuits are designed, the self-adaptive ability is limited. In order to solve these problems, a novel circuit self-adaptive design technique based on evolvable hardware (EHW) is proposed. It features robustness, self-organization and self-adaption. It can be adapted to a complex environment through dynamic configuration of the circuit. In this paper, the proposed technique simulated. The consumption of hardware resources and the number of convergence iterations researched. The effectiveness and superiority of the proposed technique are verified. The designed circuit has the ability of resistible redundant-state interference (RRSI). The proposed technique has a broad application prospect, and it has great significance.
