Abstract:

A device imitating the activity of a nerve cell neuristor consisting of a divided source of energy, a divided distributed accumulator of energy, and a divided distributed accumulating element is described. For the purpose of increasing the rapidity of the action of the device and the precision of the reproduction, it is designed as a multilayer semiconductor, consisting of a tunnel diode and a four-layer diode connected in sequence through an active resistor, shunted by a distributed capacitance. The connection between the elements neuristors is accomplished by the transmission of signals along the layers of the semiconductor.
