This paper proposes a new type of digital pulse mode neuron that employs a piecewise linear function as its activation function. The pulse mode multilayer neural network (MNN) with on-chip learning is implemented with the proposed neuron. By approximating the Sigmoid function by the piecewise linear function, the convergence rate of the learning is improved. The proposed MNN is implemented on FPGA and its feasibility is verified by experiments
