In this paper, we present a simulation and hardware realization on a compact electronic chip of the Growth Hormone secretion mechanism extending a previous model . After realization, the chip is a stand-alone electronic device that mimics the mechanism. The chip is a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). The mechanism is developed based on a modified bio-mathematical nonlinear delay differential equation model [3.]. The model explores the effects of Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone (GHRH), Somatotropin Release-Inhibiting factor (SRIF), and Ghrelin (GHS) on Growth Hormone (GH). A Computer Aided Design (CAD) package that includes a Hardware Description Language (HDL) simulator has...
