We report on the design of a new full-analog current-mode CNN in a 1.2 μm CMOS technology, whose cell care is characterized by an intrinsic capability of weights control, low power consumption and small area occupation. Circuit simulations allowed the design approach to be validated and the electrical performance of the CNN to be predicted; moreover, it is shown that the proposed CNN can be successfully adopted for several applications in image processing. A preliminary CNN test-chip, consisting of a 8×1 array for CCD and shadow detection, is currently being fabricated at IRST (Trento, Italy) in a 2.5 μm CMOS technology.
