Adaptive Solutions' CNAPS architecture is a parallel array of digital processors. This design features a Single-Instruction Multiple-Data (SIMD) stream architecture. The architecture is designed to execute on- chip learning for Artificial Neural Network (ANN) algorithms with unprecedented performance. ANNs have shown impressive results for solving difficult image processing tasks. However, current hardware prevents many ANN solutions from being effective products. The CNAPS architecture will provide the computational power to allow real time ANN applications. Because of the high parallelism of the architecture,it is also ideal for digital image processing tasks. This architecture will allow high performance applications that combine conventional image processing methods and ANNs on the same system. This paper gives a brief introduction to the CNAPS architecture, and gives the system performance on implementation of neural network algorithms, and conventional image processing algorithms such as convolution, and 2D Fourier transforms.
