A description of the hybrid computing hardware of a system designed to provide basic building blocks from which large neural networks can be constructed. The relationship of these building blocks to automata theory is discussed, and their possible usefulness in the construction of neural nets is examined. A simple network, containing at least one representative of each of five basic types of circuits, is constructed and the logical properties of the building blocks are described. An appendix gives detailed descriptions of the required circuitry and control functions. 39 pp. Ref.
