This paper focuses on implementations of two modified Aihara's chaotic neuron models and a simple chaotic neural network constructed with two chaotic neurons in a programmable and reconfigurable manner with an analog programmable device, FPAA (Field Programmable Analog Array). After testing the chaotic behaviors of two chaotic neuron models and a simple chaotic neural network through numerical analyses that consist of time domain responses, phase portrait illustrations and bifurcation diagrams, the experimental setup is constructed with a FPAA device. The parametric adjustments of chaotic neural structures are possible with the proposed flexible design methodology and different chaotic neuron models are constructed on the same reconfigurable device without any hardware changes. Experimental results verify the dynamic behaviors of these chaotic neural structures and demonstrate the efficiency of programmable implementations.
