Abstract

Principles of operation and basic building blocks of artificial neural networks are described. Deterministic components, comprising variable linear conductance devices and components used for processing elements, are discussed. These devices are analyzed using SPICE. The reasons for using simple analog circuits rather than digital circuits are examined.
