From its conception by Professor Lotfi A. Zadeh in the early '60s, Fuzzy Logic has slowly won acceptance, first in the academic world, then in industry. Its success is mainly due to the different perspective with which problems are tackled. Thanks to Fuzzy Logic we have moved from a numerical/analytical description to a quantitative/qualitative one. It is important to stress that this different perspective not only allows us to solve analysis/control problems at lower costs but can also allow otherwise insoluble problems to be solved at acceptable costs. Of course, it must be stressed that Fuzzy Systems cannot match the computational precision of traditional techniques but seek, instead, to find acceptable solutions in shorter times. Recognizing the enormous importance of fuzzy logic in the markets of the future, SGS-THOMSON intends to produce devices belonging to a new class of machines: Fuzzy Computational Machines. For this purpose a major research project has been established considering the architectural aspects and system implications of fuzzy logic, the development of dedicated VLSI components and supporting software.
