In this work, we propose a hardware realization of the Brain-State-in-a-Box (BSB) neural network model training algorithm. This method can be implemented as an analog/digital mixed-signal circuit to train memristor crossbar arrays within BSB circuits. The training effect is demonstrated through experimentation and the quality as an auto-associative memory is also analyzed and compared with software based training methods. The impacts of non-ideal device characteristics and fabrication defects in crossbar arrays are discussed. Our hardware architecture shows great potential for low power, high speed, small hardware size computations, and provides inherent security features. © 2013 IEEE.
