This paper studies the architecture of a neural classifier designed to identify technical condition of machines, based on vibroacoustic signals. The designed neural network is optimized for implementation on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) programmable devices. FPGA allows massive parallelism and thus real time classification as each neuron can execute arithmetic operations simultaneously. The classifier of vibroacoustic signals was designed and tested for the self - organized neural network. The teaching vectors are based on estimates derived from processed vibroacoustic signals generated by rotary machines. The created classifier was applied for recognizing technical state of demonstrative toothed gear DMA1 in variable operating conditions.
