<p>This book summarizes the recent breakthroughs in hardware implementation of neuro-inspired computing using resistive synaptic devices. The authors describe how two-terminal solid-state resistive memories can emulate synaptic weights in a neural network. Readers will benefit from state-of-the-art summaries of resistive synaptic devices, from the individual cell characteristics to the large-scale array integration. This book also discusses peripheral neuron circuits design challenges and design strategies. Finally, the authors describe the impact of device non-ideal properties (e.g. noise, variation, yield) and their impact on the learning performance at the system-level, using a device-algorithm co-design methodology.</p>

<p>This book focuses on computing devices and their design at various levels to combat variability.  The authors provide a review of key concepts with particular emphasis on timing errors caused by various variability sources. They discuss methods to predict and prevent, detect and correct, and finally conditions under which such errors can be accepted; they also consider their implications on cost, performance and quality. Coverage includes a comparative evaluation of methods for deployment across various layers of the system from circuits, architecture, to application software. These can be combined in various ways to achieve specific goals related to observability and controllability of the variability effects, providing means to achieve cross layer or hybrid resilience.<br /></p>

Hailed as stimulus for the next generation of scientists by Scientific Computing, each volume in the highly acclaimed Manga Guide series teaches complex math and science topics with the aid of authentic Japanese manga comics. The latest in the series, <i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i>, tackles microprocessors (the brain inside all computers), binary, microprocessor architecture, digital operations, even basic, low-level programming. <br /><br />But don’t take the comic book format of these books for granted. While full of comics, like all books in the Manga Guide series <i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i> is serious business. With the aid of a comic story starring Ayumi Katsuragi in her quest to understand her game-playing computer opponent, readers will learn the basics of computers and digital logic. College-level topics like how the CPU processes information and makes decisions; how to make sense of binary; what logic gates are and how they can be combined to make functioning machines; how circuits are used to perform arithmetic or to remember information; memory and interrupts; how data passes through the bus; the type and nature of digital operations; even a bit of assembly and and other programming languages. <br /><br /><i>The Manga Guide to Microprocessors</i> assumes no prior knowledge of microprocessors, making it perfect for beginners, computer science students, or simply the computer-afficionado who wants a deeper understanding of the inner workings of microprocessors.
