Kohonen maps are self-organizing neural networks that classify and quantify n-dimensional data into a one- or two-dimensional array of neurons. Most applications of Kohonen maps use simulations on conventional computers, eventually coupled to hardware accelerators or dedicated neural computers. The small number of different operations involved in the(More)
A complete digitally programmable analogue Fuzzy Logic Controller (FLC) is presented. The design of some new functional blocks and the improvement of others aim towards speed optimisation with a reasonable accuracy, as it is needed in several analogue Signal Processing applications. A nine-rules, two-inputs and one-output prototype was fabricated and(More)
One day, you will discover a new adventure and knowledge by spending more money. But when? Do you think that you need to obtain those all requirements when having much money? Why don't you try to get something simple at first? That's something that will lead you to know more about the world, adventure, some places, history, entertainment, and more? It is(More)
46 IEEE MICRO S ince the pioneering work of McCulloch and Pitts in 1943,’ many researchers have tried to realize artificial devices that emulate the human brain. The challenge is to obtain a computational power unknown to conventional von Neumann computers. These computers do indeed achieve great speeds in the performance of repetitive tasks, but they(More)
This paper demonstrates that fully-depleted (FD) silicon-on-insulator (SOI) technology offers unique opportunities in the ®eld of low-voltage, low-power CMOS circuits. Beside the well-known reduction of parasitic capacitances due to dielectric isolation, FD SOI MOSFETs indeed exhibit near-ideal body factor, subthreshold slope and current drive. These assets(More)
Abstrud -Hopfield’s neural networks show retrieval and speed capabilities that make them good candidates for content-addressable memories (CAM’s) in problems such as pattern recognition and optimization. This paper presents a new implementation of a VLSI fully interconnected neural network with only two binary memory points per synapse (the connection(More)
