Abstract:

The TrueNorth neuromorphic chip has demonstrated significant advantages in power efficiency compared to traditional processors and graphics processing units at tasks related to image and audio classification. However, while the chip has extremely low power consumption, its non-standard IO interface requires conversion circuitry that currently dominates the overall system power consumption. This report summarizes the work conducted to eliminate this overhead, and provide a native interface to the TrueNorth chip with low power consumption.
