Design of a rule-driven architecture for a genetic T-norm

Enrique Frías Martínez, Julio Gutiérrez Ríos, Felipe Fernández Hernández


Rule-Driven processing has been proved as a way of achieving high speed in fuzzy hardware. Up to now, rule-driven architectures were designed to work with minimum or product as T-norm.
This paper proposes two new rule-driven models designed for any T-norm (programmable T-norm) and any kind of membership function.
The first one gives a valid theory for rule-driven processing with programmable T-norm and stablishes the background for the second model. The second model has been designed taking into account its implementation characteristics and for normalized membership functions with an overlap factor of two. The architecture proposed can be
implemented either by hardware or software.
