A Discrete Hardware Artificial Neural Network with AVR Microcontroller

Abdolreza Joghataie, Saber Avestakh

Abstract


In recent years considerable effort has been carried out to advance the hardware Artificial Neural Networks where in most cases, many neurons are placed on a VLSI chip. This research attempts to build individual neurons and connect them to build a hybrid of analog and digital neural network. In fact, every neuron is an AVR microcontroller which has a number of inputs and outputs. The data transfer between neurons is done by UARTs.
