This paper studies a pulse-coupled network consisting of simple chaotic spiking oscillators (CSOs). If a unit oscillator and its neighbor(s) have (almost) the same parameter values, they exhibit in-phase synchronization of chaos. As the parameter values differ, they exhibit asynchronous phenomena. Based on such behavior, some synchronous groups appear partially in the network. Typical phenomena are verified in the laboratory via a simple test circuit. These phenomena can be evaluated numerically by using an effective mapping procedure. We then apply the proposed network to image segmentation. Using a lattice pulse-coupled network via grouping synchronous phenomena, the input image data can be segmented into some sub-regions.

    ABSTRACT: This paper proposes a pulse-coupled system with three spiking neurons. The neurons operate integrate-and-fire dynamics and output a spike. When this happens, another neuron accepts the spiked output and is compelled to fire: In this way, a ring of three neurons are coupled. As the parameter is varied, the behavior becomes a master-slave conjunction. We clarify the theoretical results for various boundary conditions and present the results of numerical simulations. Using a test circuit, we confirm the typical behavior of a pulse-coupled system.

    • "It should be noted that the unit oscillator presented in [16] has one internal state variable, and can exhibit periodic phenomena only. The unit oscillator of the proposed CDGS has two internal state variables x i and y i , and can exhibit various chaotic and bifurcating phenomena [21] [22]. Also, it can generate chaotic spike-trains such that series of interspike intervals is chaotic. "

    ABSTRACT: This paper studies chaos synchronization-based data transmission scheme in multiple sink wireless sensor networks. In the proposed scheme, each wireless sensor node has a simple chaotic oscillator. The oscillators generate impulsive signals with chaotic interspike intervals, and are impulsively coupled by the signals via wireless communica-tion. Each wireless sensor node transmits and receives sensor information only in the timing of the couplings. The proposed scheme can exhibit various synchronization and quasi-synchronization of chaos, and can effectively gather sensor information with low energy consumption. Also, the proposed scheme can flexibly adapt various wireless sensor networks not only with a single sink node but also with multiple sink nodes. We evaluate the proposed scheme using computer simulations. Through simulation experiments, we show effectiveness of the proposed scheme and discuss its development potential.

    • "For instance, in 2-D systems having a " spiraling " vector field, to keep the state bounded, it is sufficient to trigger state updates at a single hyperplane (Fig. 4). Interestingly, this kind of dynamics is well known by circuit experts working on chaos since similar behaviors can be found in models incorporating hysteresis [27] or integrate-and-fire switches [28], the latter being at times referred as chaotic spiking oscillators [29]. In the 2-D case, it is often possible to prove the behavior to be chaotic by means of appropriate Poincaré sections [24], [30] and consequent reduction of the model to a map where theorems such as Li's and Yorke's [27], [31] apply.

    ABSTRACT: Testing is a critical factor for modern large-scale mixed-mode circuits. Strategies for mitigating test cost and duration include moving significant parts of the test hardware on-chip. This paper presents a novel low-overhead approach for design for test and built-in self-test of analog and mixed-mode blocks, derived from the oscillation-based test framework. The latter is enhanced by the use of complex oscillation regimes, improving fault coverage and enabling forms of parametric or specification-based testing. This technique, initially proposed targeting large subsystems such as A/D converters, is here illustrated at a much finer granularity, considering its application to analog-filter stages, and also proving its suitability to backfit existing designs. The simple case of a switched-capacitor second-order bandpass stage is used for illustration discussing how deviations from nominal gain, central frequency, and quality factor can be detected from measurements not requiring A/D stages. A sample design is validated by simulations run at the layout level, including Monte Carlo analysis and simulations based on random fault injections.
