In this work, we study the presence of stochastic resonance (SR) in a hardware pulse-type cell body model. SR is a phenomenon that uses noise to boost weak periodic signals. For this purpose, we design a random noise source and include it in the model because it has been demonstrated that adding random noise to a pulse-type cell body model significantly improves its output signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The noise also reduces the voltage needed for circuit oscillation. Finally, a decrement in the delay time is observed in the presence of noise.
