Abstract

Implementation of checkers on the basis of threshold functions is problematic due to low stability of component threshold schemes. The paper proposes two methods allowing increasing the implementability: a) by introducing a relatively small overhead for preliminary exclusion of defective circuits; and b) by using a specific procedure of calibration. The first method is proposed upon considering a method of majority reservation while the second is based on a specific learning procedure that is known from studying β-driven threshold elements as a basis for CMOS artificial neurons.
