We will bring the first prototype chip for the second-generation SpiNNaker system for exploring its connection to neuromorphic sensors. As a starting point, we will connect a DVS to it and explore its integration with SpiNNaker2 in some simple vision tasks. We are looking forward to interfacing to other sensors. The system comes with an FPGA, so we can add glue logic for different IO protocols, and we also bring a level-shifter board for bridging different voltage levels.
As well, if you have a model for sensory processing that you want to try out - each SpiNNaker2 prototype chip is freely programmable and equipped with 4 ARM cores, which gives enough flexibility for trying out small to medium-sized models in a real-time system. The system contains a novel neuromorphic power management approach, which can save significant amounts of power by adapting its speed to the current spiking activity. This workgroup gives you the opportunity to explore this new neuromorphic power management for your spiking sensory processing task.
The experiences from this workgroup directly go into the SpiNNaker2 hardware development - help us making it more useful for your task.
