Abstract:

The report devolops a new kind of device called a syneuristor after synaptic neuristor. A syneuristor is defined by six properties. These properties are shown to be sufficient to build complex automata. A circuit is proposed which is capable of realizing the properties of a syneuristor. In developing the electronic circuits, the possibility of integrating them is kept in mind. An electronic syneuristor is shown to find immediate use in all electronic robots, while realization through ionic propagation appears to hold a great potential in using them in biological systems. A brief introduction brings together the existing knowledge in this direction along with the motivation which led the author to propose a syneuristor. A comprehensive treatment is given to the application of the syneuristor in system synthesis. In particular, the syneuristor is shown to be able to model biological synapse and therefore can find use in modelling some biological systems. The syneuristor can generate a complete logic system of its own. Author
