Abstract. This paper deals with a synthesis method of membrane computer systems inspired from the biological cells structure. The functional concept of the computer system is based on the internal structure, chemical transformations and the way of interaction between living cells. Thus, the computer system is composed of a set of autonomous, homogeneous or heterogeneous computing cells, which communicate with each other in synchronous or asynchronous mode. The algorithmic complexity of the solved problem depends on the knowledge gained, the rules of data processing and the computer system topology. It is proposed the sequence of operations for the synthesis of membrane computer systems with implementation in reconfigurable FPGA architectures which includes: analysis of behavioural models of living organisms and their interpretation in artificial intelligence models; structure and functional description of the computing cell; cell modelling and performance evaluation using Petri nets; Van diagram of the membrane computer system topology; formal description of the membrane computer system topology by applying the JSON formatting language; validation, functional modelling and performance evaluation of the membrane computer system topology using Petri nets; Hardware Description Language (HDL) code of the cell from which the principle electrical diagram and the time diagrams are obtained; implementation of the computer system in the FPGA circuit.
Keywords: computational topology, cognitive properties, evolutionary computing, FPGA, HDL, knowledge, membrane computing, nature-inspired computing, natural computing, P-Systems, Petri nets, swarm intelligence, JSON.
