    In this paper, we show how a cellular nonlinear network with 1-bit weight programmability can be used for processing black and white image data. When using such a binary-programmable network, some templates need to be processed algorithmically, in other words, divided into subtasks that are processed consecutively. We classify templates into groups based on their properties and give guidelines as to how the division into subtasks (when applicable) is performed. A large collection of templates suitable for the proposed model is shown. We also describe one possible cell structure that realizes the binary-programmable model. The cell is modeled with Matlab and selected template simulations are shown.
