“Digital Image Processing on VLSI”

by Bing J. Sheu and Oscal T.-C. Chen

August 1991

An efficient processing element for data/image processing has been designed. Detailed communication networks, instruction sets and circuit blocks are created for ring-connected and mesh-connected systolic arrays for the retrieving and learning phases of the neural network operations. 800 processing elements can be implemented in 3.75 cm x 3.75 cm chip by using the 0.5 mm CMOS technology from TRW, Inc. This digital neuroprocessor can also be extended to support fuzzy logic inference.
