Abstract

In this paper, a novel field programmable analog arrays (FPAA) architecture, namely, NueroFPAA, is introduced to utilize nanodevices to build a programmable neuromorphic system. By using nanodevices as programmable components, the proposed FPAA can achieve high-density and low-power operations for neuromorphic applications. The routing and function blocks of the FPAA are specifically designed so that this proposed architecture can support large-scale neuromorphic design as well as various analog circuitries.
