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)
This article describes an implementation of a basic multiprocessor system that exhibits replication and differentiation abilities on the POEtic tissue, a programmable hardware designed for bio-inspired applications [1, 2] . As for a living organism, whose existence starts with only one cell that first divides, our system begins with only one totipotent(More)
This paper introduces the UbiManager, a tool for managing the ubichip reconfigurable circuit. The ubichip is a custom reconfigurable electronic device for implementing circuits featuring bio-inspired mechanisms like growth, learning, and evolution. The ubichip has been developed in the framework of Perplexus, a European project that aims to develop a(More)
In recent years two main platforms emerged as powerful key players in the domain of parallel computing: GPUs and FPGAs. Many researches investigate interaction and benefits of coupling them with a general purpose processor (CPU), but very few, and only very recently, integrate the two in the same computational system. Even less research are focusing on(More)
Therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) aims to optimize treatments by individualizing dosage regimens based on the measurement of blood concentrations. Dosage individualization to maintain concentrations within a target range requires pharmacokinetic and clinical capabilities. Bayesian calculations currently represent the gold standard TDM approach but require(More)
In this paper, we introduce the general architecture of a new electronic tissue called POEtic.
