Design Specification of an Artificial Neural Network Communication Controller
Described is the design specification for an Artificial Neural Network (ANN) communication controller. The communication controller will provide efficient data exchange between individual ANN units in a large parallel system. Interconnections are dynamic in nature, and can be configured to implement any arbitrary feedback path. A nexus topology is used to interconnect the communication controllers in a system. Because the recursive nature of the communication protocol, the communication controllers function identically regardless of position in the hierarchy, providing scalability and simplifying VLSI design. The protocol and the communication controller's modes of operation are presented in detail.
