This paper presents a VHDL-AMS based genetic optimization methodology suitable for performance improvement of hardware systems in automotive applications. Models of such systems are mixedsignal (analog and digital) in which the analog parts cover mixed physical domains. A case study applying this novel method to the fuzzy logic controller (FLC) optimization in an automotive active suspension system (AASS) has been investigated. A new type of fuzzy logic membership functions with variable geometrical shapes has been proposed and optimized. In this optimization technique, VHDL-AMS is used not only for the modeling and simulation of the FLC and its underlying AASS but also for the implementation of a parallel genetic algorithm (GA). This has resulted in an integrated performance optimization system wholly implemented in the hardware description language (HDL). Results show that the proposed FLC has superior performance to that of existing FLCs that use fixed-shape membership functions.
