Abstract

With the increasing interest in neuromorphic computing, designers of embedded systems face the challenge of efficiently simulating such platforms to enable architecture design exploration early in the development cycle. Executing artificial neural network applications on neuromorphic systems which are being simulated on virtual platforms (VPs) is an extremely demanding computational task. Nevertheless, it is a vital benchmarking task for comparing different possible architectures. Therefore, exploiting the multicore capabilities of the VP's host system is essential to achieve faster simulations. Hence, this paper presents a parallel SystemC based VP for RISC-V multicore platforms integrating multiple computing-in-memory neuromorphic accelerators.
