In this study, the basic properties of a number of important Neuro-chips, boards, and computers that have been physically produced shall be presented. Then, a digital MOS chip called RNNC, based on the random neural network model, shall be briefly discussed. The RNNC architecture is cascadable. The synapses of internal neurons within me chip are programmable. The RNNC circuit is implemented using the 0.7 mu m CMOS process.

Structured neural networks for modeling and identification of nonlinear mechanical systems
Kılıç, Ergin; Dölen, Melik; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2012)
Most engineering systems are highly nonlinear in nature and thus one could not develop efficient mathematical models for these systems. Artificial neural networks, which are used in estimation, filtering, identification and control in technical literature, are considered as universal modeling and functional approximation tools. Unfortunately, developing a well trained monolithic type neural network (with many free parameters/weights) is known to be a daunting task since the process of loading a specific pat...
Case studies on the use of neural networks in eutrophication modeling
Karul, C; Soyupak, S; Cilesiz, AF; Akbay, N; Germen, E (2000-10-30)
Artificial neural networks are becoming more and more common to be used in development of prediction models for complex systems as the theory behind them develops and the processing power of computers increase. A three layer Levenberg-Marquardt feedforward learning algorithm was used to model the eutrophication process in three water bodies of Turkey (Keban Dam Reservoir, Mogan and Eymir Lakes). Despite the very complex and peculiar nature of Keban Dam, a relatively good correlation (correlation coefficient...
Numerical Investigation on Cooling of Small form Factor Computer Cases
ORHAN, OMER EMRE; Tarı, İlker (2008-11-01)
In this study, cooling of small form factor computers is numerically investigated. The problem is a conjugate heat transfer problem in which ambient air is the final heat transfer medium. In modeling the problem, heat transfer using heat pipes running from the CPU to the heat exchanger in the back end of the chassis, forced convection inside the chassis, ventilation of the chassis air, conduction paths inside the chassis, and natural convection from the chassis walls to the ambient air are considered. The n...
Neural networks with piecewise constant argument and impact activation
Yılmaz, Enes; Akhmet, Marat; Department of Scientific Computing (2011)
This dissertation addresses the new models in mathematical neuroscience: artificial neural networks, which have many similarities with the structure of human brain and the functions of cells by electronic circuits. The networks have been investigated due to their extensive applications in classification of patterns, associative memories, image processing, artificial intelligence, signal processing and optimization problems. These applications depend crucially on the dynamical behaviors of the networks. In t...
Fabrication of metallic anisotropic particles
Çınar, Simge; Ulucan, Tolga Han (null; 2018-09-23)
Having the capability to fabricate programmable and advanced materials with designed properties and new functions has been of significant attention for the broad scientific community. One of the recent approaches to developing such capability in nano- and micro-materials is to introduce a spatial distribution of at least two components and benefit from the multifunctionality stemmed from this anisotropy for programmability or synergetic effects. Synthesis of anisotropic metallic particles at nano- or micros...
