    Step 1: Reproduce "Volga" logical elements

    Using album of USSR "Volga" fluidic elements we need to redraw it, model in 3D, model LGA simulation and create prototypes.

    Each element would have 50x30x5mm or something like this and represent one elementary logic operation

    Step 2: binary neuron experiments

    Let's take one XOR element, two RS-triggers and two 2AND elements and combine them into elementary binary neuron with two (or more) inputs. Each input have only two states - On and Off, and weights can be 1 and 0. So we send input to XOR element or not.

    Current weight states are stored in RS-triggers, so we can program them before use.

    Step 3: Fluidic neurons prototypes

    We put neuron schematic into one logic element, let's name this element of Neva series.

    As fluidic elements by themselves are small (10x10mm) and only air tracts are take most part of chip space we can put or five elements into the module with the same size as Volga elements.

Hi Artem, do you know there are dozens of Soviet books about fluidics? It is called пневмоника, but that`s the same thing.

See e.g. here:

Hi, Cool books list. Thanks! Yes, I already have some books in this list.

Why is the project private ?

  Are you sure? yes | no

Artem Kashkanov wrote 02/01/2018 at 12:54 point

Just because of draft status)

  Are you sure? yes | no

Oh my.
If you throw LGA simulations in the project, there is NO WAY I could refuse your invitation !

  Are you sure? yes | no

Artem Kashkanov wrote 02/01/2018 at 11:56 point

Assume LGA(or other) simulation is only one way to get a guarantee that this will work

  Are you sure? yes | no

Yann Guidon / YGDES wrote 02/01/2018 at 12:38 point

You know I'm a LGA fanatic ? :P

  Are you sure? yes | no

Artem Kashkanov wrote 02/01/2018 at 13:13 point

From this moment I know :) As for me I never used LGA before

  Are you sure? yes | no
