In this paper, a novel approach is described to design an interdigital capacitor (IDC) using artificial neural networks (ANNs) and genetic algorithm (GA). The scattering parameters of the training samples are computed by the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) and ANN is applied to describe the models of IDC. According to the engineering requirement, the dimensions of IDC can be designed with GA using the trained ANN models. This design procedure is proved to be time saving and of high accuracy.
