ABSTRACT
The use of fuzzy logic in real-time control applications necessitates special, application-specific hardware. We propose a CAD tool that assists in creating a systolic VLSI array directly from a set of fuzzy descriptive rules. The CAD tool acts as an interface between the fuzzy control designer and the VLSI technology. Using the description of the fuzzy controller, the developed tool generates three files. The first file is a netlist that describes the systolic architecture. This file is further used as input to the OCT tool suite, which is then used to create the layout. The second file contains information necessary to simulate the layout created from the first file. The third file is a parameter file that contains data used in the revision of the fuzzy rules, if necessary. The output files produced are in a format compatible with the OCT tool suite. However, the concepts proposed can be applied to most text-based VLSI design tools.
