Abstract:

An interconnecting network comprising operational amplifiers, summing amplifiers, and hysteretic coupling circuits is disclosed. The interconnecting network responds to signals of interest that may be substantially simultaneously present, but only to the highest initial intensity thereof so as to provide priority decoding of signals of interest. The hysteretic coupling circuit has a selectable coupling rate and a selectable coupling constant that allows the hysteretic circuit to respond in a stable so called winner take all manner, or conversely in a non-stable chaotic manner.
