Neuromorphic Chip Market is driven by Miniaturization of Integrated Circuits


Neuromorphic chips are the electronic chips inspired from human brains that are made out of million of neurons. The system is amalgamation of numerous artificial neural network chips which is known as neuromorphic architecture. The neuromorphic computing is executed on hardware with the help of transistors, a threshold switches and oxide based memristors. Neuromorphic chips are the amalgamation of memristors and transistors deployed over a silicon fabrication chip, which assists to lessen memory consumption as it implements the data successively.
