We introduce a new technique for solving initial value problems (IVPs) with error control by formulating an embedded method involving RK methods based on arithmetic mean (AM) and Heronian mean (HeM). The function of the simulator is that it is capable of performing raster simulation for any kind as well as any size of input image. It is a powerful tool for researchers to examine the potential applications of CNN. By using the newly proposed embedded method, a versatile algorithm for simulating multilayer CNN arrays is implemented. This article proposes an efficient pseudo code for exploiting the latency properties of CNN along with well known RK-fourth order embedded numerical integration algorithms. Simulation results and comparison have also been presented to show the efficiency of the numerical integration algorithms. It is found that the RK-embedded Heronian mean outperforms well in comparison with the RK-embedded centroidal mean, harmonic mean and contra-harmonic mean. A more quantitative analysis has been carried out to clearly visualize the goodness and robustness of the proposed algorithm.
