Summary: 
Correct and quick generation of a membership function is the key point when we implement a real-time fuzzy logic controller. In this Letter, we presented two efficient VLSI architectures, one to generate triangle-shaped and the other to generate trapezoid-shaped membership functions. Simulation results show that our designs require lower hardware cost but achieve faster working rate.
