Digital Neural Network Implementations


This chapter gives an overview of existing digital VLSI implementations and discusses techniques for implementing high performance, high capacity digital neural nets. It presents a set of techniques for estimating chip area, performance, and power consumption in the early stages of design to facilitate architectural exploration. It shows how technology scaling rules can be included in the estimation process. It presents a set of basic building blocks useful in implementing digital networks. It then uses the estimation techniques to predict capacity and performance of a variety of digital architectures. Finally, it discusses implementation strategies for very large networks.
