—Drawing on neuroscience, we have developed a parallel, event-driven kernel for neurosynaptic computation, that is efficient with respect to computation, memory, and communication. Building on the previously demonstrated highly-optimized software expression of the kernel, here, we demonstrate TrueNorth, a co-designed silicon expression of the kernel.(More)
Modern FPGAs' parallel computing capability and their ability to be reconfigured make them an ideal platform to build accelerators for supercomputing systems. As a multi-core processor, the recently announced Cell Broadband EngineTMl offers tremendous computing power. In this paper, we introduce a prototype system that combines these two types of computing(More)
In this paper we provide a detailed description of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) based reconfigurable system which has been used in the development of a System on a Chip (SoC) processor and corresponding applications targeted for network computing appliances. The complexity of the processor, in terms of number of hardware threads (64), integrated(More)
