In this paper, we present a hardware friendly binary decision tree (DT) classifier for gas identification. The DT classifier is based on an axis-parallel decision tree implemented as threshold networks-one layer of threshold logic units (TLUs) followed by a programmable binary tree implemented using combinational logic circuits. The proposed DT classifier circuit removes the need for multiplication operation enabling up to 80% savings in terms of silicon area and power compared to oblique based-DT while achieving 91.36% classification accuracy without throughput degradation. The circuit was designed in 0.18 μm Charter CMOS process and tested using a data set acquired with in-house fabricated tin-oxide gas sensors.
