SOM accelerator system

  title={SOM accelerator system},
  author={Stefan R{\"u}ping and Mario Porrmann and Ulrich R{\"u}ckert},
Many applications of self-organizing maps (SOM) require high computing performance in order to be efficient. Because of the regular and modular structure of SOMs, a custom hardware realization is obvious. Based on the idea of a massively parallel system, several chips have been designed, manufactured and tested by the authors. In this article a high-performance system with the latest NBISOM—25 chips is presented. The NBISOM—25 integrated circuit (ES2 1.0 lm CMOS) contains 25 processing elements… CONTINUE READING
