neuro-Cell: A cognitive computing System-on-Chip
This document provides an introduction to the neuro Cell Technology (nCell). nCell represents a revolutionary extension of conventional multi-processor architecture. This post discusses the problem, design concept, the architecture and programming models, and the implementation.
Over the last 20 years digital electronics has evolved and improved exponentially. The performance of devices is roughly doubling every 18 months because transistor size and the cost of chips have shrunk at an impressive pace. Unrelenting advances in the transistor density of integrated circuits have resulted in a large number of engineered systems with diversified functional characteristics to meet various demands of the human life, ranging from micro-embedded devices, implantable medical devices, and smart sensors. However, the complexity of system-level design for these increasingly evolved engineered systems is further compounded when interdisciplinary requirements are included, for example, massive integration and interconnection between components and subsystems, feedback and redundancy.
The increasingly shrinking electronic technology…
