In this paper, we study convergence characteristics of a class of continuous time fractional-order cellular neural network containing delay. Using the method of Lyapunov and Mittag-Leffer functions, we derive sufficient condition for global Mittag-Leffer stability, which further implies global asymptotic stability of the system equilibrium. Based on the theory of fractional calculus and the generalized Gronwall inequality, we approximate the solution of the corresponding neural network model using discretization method by piecewise constant argument and obtain some easily verifiable conditions, which ensures that the discrete-time analogues preserve the convergence dynamics of the continuous-time networks. In the end, we give appropriate examples to validate the proposed results, illustrating advantages of the discrete-time analogue over continuous-time neural network for numerical simulation.
