Analog VLSI Implementation of Novel Hybrid Neural Network Multiplier Architecture

  title={Analog VLSI Implementation of Novel Hybrid Neural Network Multiplier Architecture},
  author={Srinivasan Venkatesh and P. Cyril and P. Cyril Prasanna Raj},
Neural networks are suitable to resolve problems where conventional resolution methods fail. The multipliers form a basic and important block in realising a neural network and this is commonly known as “Synapse”. Their roles are to multiply an input current with trained digital weights. Several research attempts to implement synapses. Some use numeric implementation whereas others use analogue circuit. Each of these implementations methods has its own advantages and drawbacks. Numeric…
