Abstract
<strong>SpiNNaker</strong> is a massively-parallel machine designed for very-large scale neural net simulation in real time. SpiNNaker systems are based on multi-core SpiNNaker chips, which contain 18 energy-efficient ARM cores and a bespoke communications infrastructure optimized for the transmission of simulated neuronal spikes. SpiNNaker systems are built using SpiNN-5 boards, populated with 48 SpiNNaker chips interconnected in a hexagonal 2D mesh. Boards are connected together using high-speed serial links provided by 3 on-board Xilinx Spartan6 FPGAs. The <strong>spI/O</strong> library contains a series of FPGA designs and reusable modules for I/O and intern...
