In this article, we discuss an automated circuit design procedure for an analog circuit by means of genetic programming. A novel analog circuit topology can be emerged by our proposed design procedure. In our proposed design procedure, the circuit is represented by a netlist which uses the circuit simulator SPICE. The SPICE netlist can be regarded as a program. Therefore, if we can make an appropriate program, an analog circuit can be designed. In order to create an appropiate program, genetic programming method is proposed. By using the genetic programming, we will propose an automated circuit design procedure for an analog circuit. In this article, we will show two experiments results that our system generates a lowpass filter circuit and high-pass filter circuit.
