This brief describes the neuromorphic very large scale integration implementation of a synapse utilizing a single floating-gate (FG) transistor that can be used to store a weight in a nonvolatile manner and demonstrate biological learning rules such as spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). The experimental STDP plot (change in weight against △t = tpost - tpre) of a traditional FG synapse from previous studies shows a depression instead of potentiation at some range of positive values of △t… CONTINUE READING
