Publisher and Date:(IEEE-INST Electrical Electronics Engineers Inc, 2001)Analog techniques are desirable for hardware implementation of neural networks due to their numerous advantages such as small size low power and high speed. However these advantages are often offset by the difficulty in the training of analog neural network circuitry. In particular training of the circuitry by software based on hardware models is impaired by statistical variations in the integrated circuit production process resulting in performance degradation. In this paper a new paradigm of ...

Publisher and Date:(IEEE, 2000)A GRBF network is designed for VLSI implementation. Building blocks of the network consist mainly of analog circuits: op-amp multiplier multiplying DAC (digital to analog converter) floating resistor summer and exponentiator. Parameters of the network (center width of the Gaussian function and output layer weights) are represented digitally for convenient interfacing. It is shown that individual GRBF units allow independent tuning of center width and amplitude. Several network structures are ...
