Abstract
The use of dynamic reconfiguration appears extremely attractive for implementing adaptive processing algorithms. Often, the adaption involves updating look-up tables based on a parameter which can only be determined at run-time. For reasons of efficiency, these look-up tables are read-only to the rest of the circuitry. This paper compares the use of run-time reconfiguration and read-only look-up tables, with similar implementations using writable memories. The application under consideration is the multi-layer perceptron neural network. It is shown that the ROM based network is considerably simpler than the RAM based network, at the expense of a dramatically increased time to update the weights during training.
