A massively parallel, all-digital, stochastic architecture-TInMANN-that acts as a Kohonen self-organizing feature map is described. A VLSI design is shown for a TInMANN neuron which fits within a small, inexpensive MOSIS TinyChip frame, yet which can be configured to build networks of arbitrary size. The neuron operates at a speed of 15 MHz, making it capable of processing 195000 three-dimensional training examples per second. Three man-months were required to synthesize the neuron and its… CONTINUE READING
