A parallel algorithm for finding Ramsey numbers is presented where analog/digital CMOS circuits for the hysteresis McCulloch-Pitts binary neuron are described. The hysteresis McCulloch-Pitts binary neuron model is used in order to suppress the oscillatory behaviors of neural dynamics so that the convergence time is shortened. The proposed algorithm using the hysteresis McCulloch-Pitts binary neuron found five Ramsey numbers. The analog CMOS sigmoid circuit with variable gain controls has been fabricated and tested using the SAC data acquisition board interfaced with a TMS 32010 processor. Hysteresis can be implemented by the positive feedback in the fabricated CMOS analog circuit.
