A 1, 000-Neuron System with One Million 7-bit Physical Interconnections
An asynchronous PDM (Pulse-Density-Modulating) digital neural network system has been developed in our laboratory. It consists of one thousand neurons that are physically interconnected via one million 7-bit synapses. It can solve one thousand simultaneous nonlinear first-order differential equations in a fully parallel and continuous fashion. The performance of this system was measured by a winner-take-all network with one thousand neurons. Although the magnitude of the input and network parameters were identical for each competing neuron, one of them won in 6 milliseconds. This processing speed amounts to 360 billion connections per second. A broad range of neural networks including spatiotemporal filtering, feedforward, and feedback networks can be run by loading appropriate network parameters from a host system.
