Cellular Neural Networks: Analysis, Design and Optimization by Martin Hänggi, George S. Moschytz

By Martin Hänggi, George S. Moschytz

Cellular Neural Networks (CNNs) represent a category of nonlinear, recurrent and in the community coupled arrays of exact dynamical cells that function in parallel. ANALOG chips are being built to be used in functions the place refined sign processing at low energy intake is needed.
sign processing through CNNs merely turns into effective if the community is carried out in analog undefined. In view of the actual obstacles that analog implementations entail, powerful operation of a CNN chip with admire to parameter diversifications should be insured. by way of some distance no longer all mathematically attainable CNN initiatives will be conducted reliably on an analog chip; a few of them are inherently too delicate. This e-book defines a robustness degree to quantify the measure of robustness and proposes an actual and direct analytical layout procedure for the synthesis of optimally powerful community parameters. the strategy is predicated on a layout centering strategy that is typically appropriate the place linear constraints need to be happy in an optimal manner.
Processing velocity is often an important while discussing signal-processing units. with regards to the CNN, it really is proven that the surroundings time may be laid out in closed analytical expressions, which allows, at the one hand, parameter optimization with admire to hurry and, nevertheless, effective numerical integration of CNNs. Interdependence among robustness and pace matters also are addressed. one other target pursued is the unification of the speculation of continuous-time and discrete-time structures. by way of a delta-operator method, it truly is confirmed that an identical community parameters can be utilized for either one of those sessions, no matter if their nonlinear output capabilities fluctuate.
extra advanced CNN optimization difficulties that can't be solved analytically necessitate resorting to numerical tools. between those, stochastic optimization concepts reminiscent of genetic algorithms end up their usefulness, for instance in photograph type difficulties. because the inception of the CNN, the matter of discovering the community parameters for a wanted job has been considered as a studying or education challenge, and computationally dear equipment derived from average neural networks were utilized. additionally, quite a few worthwhile parameter units were derived by way of instinct.
during this e-book, a right away and distinctive analytical layout technique for the community parameters is gifted. The strategy yields strategies that are optimal with recognize to robustness, a side that's an important for profitable implementation of the analog CNN that has usually been overlooked.
`This fantastically rounded paintings presents many attention-grabbing and priceless effects, for either CNN theorists and circuit designers.'

INTRODUCTION When discussing and comparing signal processing devices, their processing speed is always of particular interest. , the time it takes the system to reach its equilibrium state. In this chapter, the settling time of locally regular CNNs is defined and investigated. 1. ) For stable planar CNNs with bipolar output, we define the settling time TSij of the cell eij to be the time it takes the cell to reach its final output value: Ts = min(t I Yij·(r) = Y/~j' IJ t~O Vr ~ t) In a straightforward extension, the settling time Ts of an entire CNN is defined as Ts = l~i~N max Ts·· = min(t I y(t) = y*).

If two cells were initially linear or there were two slowest cells, this would contradict the property of being ordered. The property of being affected implies that no pair of cells must flip at CHAPTER 4. CNN SETTLING TIME 56 the same time. Since the (maximum) neighborhood radius of the templates under consideration is 1, c cannot be larger than 2 and s cannot be smaller than L - 1. , the second cell in the string is affected by the first one, but is itself the first to become linear, and the penultimate cell is a slowest cell (which determines Ts ), but affects the last one.

20) , and we end up with the same linear and homogeneous system of inequalities as in the previous section, (Kp); > 0 VI :( i :( n. 21) After this analysis step we proceed in exactly the same manner as in Sec. 1 is applicable. 5 (Shadowing) The template set A = [0 2 2] B = [0] I =2 is often used for the shadow projection task. Since the first entry in the A -template is zero, only 4 configurations of neighboring cells (including the center cell itself) are to be investigated, p = [1 22]1 . The configurations may occur at any CHAPTER 3.
