Single Chip System

The single chip system is based on the "Spikey" chip, the first neuromorphic chip developed in the Electronic Vision(s) group. The basic FPGA platform developed for the HAGEN chip is resused to allow the simulateous operation of 16 Spikey chips on a single backplane. By communicating the neural action potentials beween different chips networks much larger than the indiviudal chips 100k synapses can be modeled. For this purpose an isochronous network protocol has been developed.
