This paper describes the design of a neural network architecture optimised for use with the reactive Tabu search (RTS) training algorithm. The neural network is built using the hybrid-logarithmic number system (hybrid-LNS) instead of the traditional fixed-point methods for the multiply-accumulate (MAC) unit contained in each neuron. The circuits have been… CONTINUE READING
