Neuromorphic Chip Market is Driven due to Increasing Demand of Artificial Intelligence
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. Neuromorphic computing is executed on hardware by threshold switches, transistors 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 in real time manner. Moreover, neuromorphic chips are the digital and analog very large scale integration (VLSI) system which performs as neural systems models. Implementation of neuromorphic chip is likely to increase scalability, performance and sensitivity of machines.
Neuromorphic chips are combination of digital and analog very large scale integration (VLSI) system and software, which execute neural systems models. Neuromorphic chips are combination of digital and analog very large scale integration (VLSI) system and software, which execute neural systems models. This can be executed on hardware by threshold switches, transistors, and oxide based memristors. These are the electronic chips based on the concept of human brain and are made out of millions of neurons. These are small enough in size, so that it can be placed inside electronic devices and human body easily. Moreover, these chips are placed in one single micron of space which drives the miniaturization of integrated circuits. The increase in application wise penetration of miniaturization of integrated circuits has fuelled the demand for neuromorphic chips. Logistics, ‘aerospace and defense’ and automotive are some of the sectors where neuromorphic chips are used for image recognition.
