In brief: No

What was formerly called Asperger's is now included in the mild end of the spectrum of autism.
It is not a personality disorder, rather a different way of being that is in the spectrum primarily because the social difficulties (social tone deafness) experienced is out of proportion to otherwise normal to very high intelligence.
