Abstract

In this paper we present a VLSI method for analog synaptic learning in an electronic neuronal model. This method reduces the size and complexity involved in implementing adaptive neuronally-based controllers for robotic motion. It also provides for a continuous range of synaptic weights at both excitatory and inhibitory inputs while anticipating the need to interface to a pulsedriven system. The system is described, and test results indicate that it is able to alter the synaptic coupling on an inhibitory or an excitatory input over a wide range.
