Abstract

Neuromorphic computing is one promising postMoore’s law era technology. In order to develop and use neuromorphic systems, traditional von Neumann-based computers must be able to communicate with neuromorphic hardware to support functionality such as monitoring the state of the network, optimizing the array to better perform the task, and input/output data processing. In this paper, we describe our use of a separate neuromorphic array communications controller to support highthroughput, low-latency communication between a traditional computer and our implementations of neuromorphic systems. The goal of the communications controller is to provide enough performance to facilitate the desired interaction between the systems and to enable scaling of the neuromorphic systems to larger sizes.
