Using stochastic bits instead of binary logic

H. Li and Y. Chen, Hybrid Logic Computing of Binary and Stochastic, IEEE Embedded Systems Letters, vol. 14, no. 4, pp. 171-174, Dec. 2022 DOI: 10.1109/LES.2022.3170457.

Binary logic is applied internally to almost all digital signal processing and computer systems, because binary logic is direct implemented in CMOS circuits. Stochastic logic is achieved through its particular representation of data, which uses the probability of the logic level being ON to represent data. Stochastic logic computing is a type of logic computation based on stochastic bit stream instead of the binary numbers. This letter proposes a hybrid computing system of binary logic and stochastic logic, called hybrid logic. The study discusses how to generate hybrid logic circuits, and demonstrates the properties of hybrid logic circuits.
