Title (EN) INSTRUCTION, CIRCUITS, AND LOGIC FOR PIECEWISE LINEAR APPROXIMATION
(FR) INSTRUCTION, CIRCUITS ET LOGIQUE DESTINÉS À L'APPROXIMATION LINÉAIRE PAR MORCEAUX
Abstract:
(EN) A processor includes a linear approximator and a front end including circuitry to assign linear approximation of a nonlinear function to a linear approximator. The linear approximator includes circuitry to divide a range of values for the linear approximation into a defined number of segments, perform linear approximation for each segment, move borders between the segments to reduce discontinuity moving along segments of variable length, repeat linear approximation for each segment until convergence, and return values for the linear approximation.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un processeur qui comprend une approximateur linéaire et un frontal comprenant un ensemble de circuits en vue d'attribuer une approximation linéaire d'une fonction non linéaire à un approximateur linéaire. L'approximateur linéaire comprend un ensemble de circuits en vue de diviser une plage de valeurs pour l'approximation linéaire en un nombre défini de segments, effectuer l'approximation linéaire pour chaque segment, déplacer les frontières entre les segments en vue de réduire la discontinuité se déplaçant le long de segments de longueur variable, répéter l'approximation linéaire pour chaque segment jusqu'à la convergence et renvoyer les valeurs pour l'approximation linéaire.
