Experimental verification of a memristive neural network

This paper presents an electronic circuit able to emulate the behavior of a neural network based on memristive synapses. The latter is built with two flux-controlled floating memristor emulator circuits operating at high frequency and two passive resistors. Synapses are connected in a way that a bridge circuit is obtained, and its dynamical behavioral model is derived from characterizing memristive synapses. Analysis of the memristor characteristics for obtaining a suitable synaptic response is also described. A neural network of one neuron and two inputs is connected using the proposed topology, where synaptic positive and negative weights can easily be reconfigured. The behavior of the proposed artificial neural network based on memristors is verified through MATLAB, HSPICE simulations and experimental results. Synaptic multiplication is performed with positive and negative weights, and its behavior is also demonstrated through experimental results getting 6% of error.
