We present a new concept for multi-compartment emulation on neuromorphic hardware based on the BrainScaleS wafer-scale system. The implementation features complex dendrite routing capabilities, realistic scaling of compartmental parameters and active spike propagation. Simulations proof the circuit’s capability of reproducing passive dendritic properties of a model from literature.
