Abstract

This paper attempts to clarify the problems which occur in implementation of a large‐scale neural network. First, a neural A‐D converter with CMOS circuits is designed. Asymmetrical synaptic weights were used to avoid the local minima problem for a neural A‐D converter. Furthermore, a chip is fabricated using 4 μm CMOS technology. Its successful action as an A‐D converter is verified and some possible causes of misoperation of the present circuit are presented.
