Abstract

Currently, there is a lack of availability of low cost, low power neuromorphic hardware. In this work, we introduce the ╬╝Caspian architecture along with an associated development PCB design which provides a low cost and SWaP (size, weight, and power) optimized neuromorphic hardware platform. Further, our proposed system only uses commercial off the shelf components and an open source FPGA workflow to maximize the accessibility of ╬╝Caspian to all researchers.
