	  abstract     = {The evolutionary design of electronic circuits, or
evolvable hardware, is a discipline that allows the user to
automatically obtain the desired circuit design. The circuit
configuration is under the control of evolutionary algorithms. Several
researchers have used evolvable hardware to design electrical
circuits. Every time that one particular algorithm is selected to carry
out the evolution, it is necessary that all its parameters, such as
mutation rate, population size, selection mechanisms etc. are tuned in
order to achieve the best results during the evolution process. This
paper investigates the abilities of evolution strategy to evolve digital
logic circuits based on programmable logic array structures when
different mutation rates are used. Several mutation rates (fixed and
variable) are analyzed and compared with each other to outline the
most appropriate choice to be used during the evolution of
combinational logic circuits. The experimental results outlined in this
paper are important as they could be used by every researcher who
might need to use the evolutionary algorithm to design digital logic
