Abstract. We present an implementation of Kohonen Self-Organizing
Feature Maps for the Spert-II vector microprocessor system. The im-
plementation supports arbitrary neural map topologies and arbitrary
neighborhood functions. For small networks, as used in real-world tasks,
a single Spert-II board is measured to run Kohonen net classi cation at
up to 208 million connections per second MCPS. On a speech coding
benchmark task, Spert-II performs on-line Kohonen net training at over
100 million connection updates per second MCUPS. This represents
almost a factor of 10 improvement compared to previously reported im-
plementations. The asymptotic peak speed of the system is 213 MCPS
and 213 MCUPS.
