Abstract

This paper presents a bio-inspired vision system-on-a-chip - neuFlow SoC implemented in the IBM 45 nm SOI process. The neuFlow SoC was designed to accelerate neural networks and other complex vision algorithms based on large numbers of convolutions and matrix-to-matrix operations. Post-layout characterization shows that the system delivers up to 320 GOPS with an average power consumption of 0.6 W. The power-efficiency and portability of this system is ideal for embedded vision-based devices, such as driver assistance, and robotic vision.
