CrossNets: High-Performance Neuromorphic Architectures for CMOL Circuits

2003 Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences  
We are developing a family of distributed crossbar network ("CrossNet") architectures that allow to combine high connectivity of neuromorphic circuits with high component density.  ...  Neuromorphic networks with their defect tolerance seem the most natural way to address these problems.  ...  CrossNets The somas (Fig. 3d ) may be implemented as MOSFET voltage amplifiers with a sigmoid-type saturation ("activation") function v j = g(u j ) common for the fire-rate models of neural networks.  ...
