Real-time reconfigurable subthreshold CMOS perceptron
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Science, Technology and Media, Department of Information Technology and Media. (Electronics design division, STC)
2008 (English)In: IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks, ISSN 1045-9227, E-ISSN 1941-0093, Vol. 19, no 4, 645-657 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In this paper, a new, real-time reconfigurable perceptron circuit element is presented. A six-transistor version used as a threshold gate, having a fan-in of three, producing adequate outputs for threshold of T = 1, 2 and 3 is demonstrated by chip measurements. Subthreshold operation for supply voltages in the range of 100-350 mV is shown. The circuit performs competitively with a standard static complimentary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) implementation when maximum speed and energy delay product are taken into account, when used in a ring oscillator. Functionality per transistor is, to our knowledge, the highest reported for a variety of comparable circuits not based on floating gate techniques. Statistical simulations predict probabilities for making working circuits under mismatch and process variations. The simulations, in 120-nm CMOS, also support discussions regarding lower limits to supply voltage and redundancy. A brief discussion on bow the circuit may be exploited as a basic building block for future defect tolerant mixed signal circuits, as well as neural networks, exploiting redundancy, is included.
