Automated synthesis of asynchronous event-based interfaces for neuromorphic systems


Mostafa, H; Corradi, F; Osswald, M; Indiveri, G (2013). Automated synthesis of asynchronous event-based interfaces for neuromorphic systems. In: European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design 2013 (ECCTD), Dresden, Germany, 8 September 2013 - 12 September 2013, 1-4.

Abstract

We present an automated design approach that leverages the commonly available digital design tools in order to rapidly synthesize asynchronous event-based interface circuits from behavioral VHDL code. As part of the proposed design approach, we describe a verification methodology that is able to reveal early in the design process potential timing failures in the generated circuits. Due to the fast design cycle, the approach presented allows designers to quickly explore different architectures for asynchronous circuits and compare them using quantitative metrics based for example on power consumption or silicon area. We validated the proposed design method by synthesizing asynchronous interface circuits for a neuromorphic multi-neuron architecture, and fabricating the VLSI device. We present data from silicon that demonstrates the correct operation of the automatically generated circuits.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
