In this work, we analyse and compare the FPGA implementation of two neural network learning algorithms: the standard and well known Back-Propagation algorithm and C-Mantec, a constructive neural network algorithm that generates compact one hidden layer architectures with good predictive capabilities. One of the main differences between both algorithms is the fact that while Back-Propagation needs a predefined architecture, C-Mantec constructs its network while learning the input patterns. Several aspects of the FPGA implementation of both algorithms are analyzed, focusing in features like logic and memory resources needed, transfer function implementation, computation time, etc. The advantages and disadvantages of both methods in relationship to their hardware implementations are discussed.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/114748||ISSN:||1370-4621||DOI:||10.1007/s11063-017-9655-x||Source:||Neural Processing Letters [ISSN 1370-4621], n. 46, p. 899-914|
