Genetic algorithm (GA) is one of optimization algorithm based on an idea for evolution of life. GA can be applied various combination optimization problem. This paper proposes a parallel processor for distributed genetic algorithm (DGA) with redundant binary number. Since a redundant binary number has redundancy, solution expression becomes variegated. For this reason, it is expected the algorithm easily find the optimized solution, and the error rates decrease. Since DGA is a parallel algorithm, the performance can be improved by using a specified parallel processor. The effectiveness of the proposed processor was confirmed by some simulations and experiments using FPGA circuit board.
