Design and optimisation of modern complex mixed analogue-digital circuits require new approaches to circuit sizing. In this paper, we present a novel approach based on the application of the univariate marginal distribution algorithm to circuit sizing at the system level. The results of automotive electronics circuits sizing indicate that all design requirements have been fulfilled in comparison with a human design. Experiments indicate that elitism increases the performance of the algorithm.
