Accurate and timely information is a key motivator in the widespread adoption of CBSE technology in Europe. Although there are overlaps and informal communications between researchers and adopters of CBSE technology in Europe, there is no systematic mechanism for information interchange between the two. CBSEnet is a European Union initiative to create an(More)
Recommended by Michael Huebner FPGA devices have emerged as a popular platform for the rapid prototyping of biological Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs) applications, offering the key requirement of reconfigurability. However, FPGAs do not efficiently realise the biologically plausible neuron and synaptic models of SNNs, and current FPGA routing structures(More)
FPGA devices have witnessed popularity in their use for the rapid prototyping of biological Spiking Neural Network (SNNs) applications, as they offer the key requirement of reconfigurability. However, FPGAs do not efficiently realise the biological neuron/synaptic models. Also their routing structures cannot accommodate the high levels of neuron(More)
The promise of component-based development – the development of large-scale applications from off-the-shelf software components – may remain elusive unless we complement the facilitating technologies with processes that are designed to take account – and advantage – of components right from the start. Blackbox components present a number of serious(More)
A compact implementation of a dynamic charge transfer synapse cell, capable of implementing synaptic depression, is presented. The cell is combined with a simple current mirror summing node to produce biologically plausible postsynaptic potentials (PSPs). A single charge packet is effectively transferred from the synapse to the summing node, whenever a(More)
