A cellular hardware implementation of a spiking neural network with run-time reconfigurable connectivity is presented. It is implemented on a compact custom FPGA board which provides a powerful reconfigurable hardware platform for hardware and software design. Complementing the system, a CPU synthesized on the FPGA takes care of interfacing the network with(More)

This paper introduces Perplexus, a European project that aims to develop a scalable hardware platform made of custom reconfigurable devices endowed with bio-inspired capabilities. This platform will enable the simulation of large-scale complex systems and the study of emergent complex behaviors in a virtually unbounded wireless network of computing modules.(More)
In this article, we try to analyze the requirements of developmental processes from the perspective of their implementation in digital hardware. After recalling the motivations for such an implementation, we concentrate separately on the two mechanisms (cellular division and cellular differentiation) that are exploited by biological systems to realize(More)
