Abstract:

The study continues to emphasize the derivation of synthesis techniques applicable to the design of switching networks which incorporate threshold devices. Significant progress on establishing feasibility and in deriving supporting mathematical proofs for some of the synthesis algorithms has been made. However,A SECOND OBJECTIVE, RELATED TO THE PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION OF THRESHOLD SWITCHING NETWORKS, NOW SUPPLEMENTS THE ORIGINAL EMPHASIS. Preliminary work on two topics is described which touch directly upon hardware implementation. These are 1 The derivation of techniques for transforming a network of given threshold elements to another network whose elements each have a different number of inputs and 2 A definition of the characteristics of threshold elements to determine the allowable limits on various parameters.
