The uniform design technique was integrated into an adaptive genetic algorithm for the sake of optimal design of circuits. The approach proposed features a dynamic evaluation mechanism of multi-objectives, an efficient encoding-decoding scheme based on preferred values, and a classified adaptation strategy of genetic parameters. It was validated by experiments.
