During the past few years JPL has been actively involved in soft computing research encompassing theory, architecture, and electronic hardware applications. There are a host of soft computing applications that require orders of magnitude enhancement in speed compared to that obtained using simulations on digital machines. For on-board computing this is made possible by selecting suitable algorithms, designing compatible architectures and implementing them in parallel processing hardware.

Additionally, development on evolvable hardware implemented on suitable electronic hardware has shown exciting high-speed evolution of various digital and analog circuits. We will review our work on electronic neural networks and evolvable hardware to bring out speed advantage.
