Design of an Interconnect Concentrator for the Human Brain Project - Wafer System

Bachelor Thesis by Johannes Reith


This thesis describes the design of an interconnect concentrator to drastically reduce the number of extern cables needed by the BrainScaleS Neuromorphic Computing Platform. In a design space exploration of the system the functions of the current system are explained and different design possibilities for the concentrator are discussed. After determining the best possible design to use, an overwiev of the technical requirements is given, as well as an explanation of the design choices needed to fulfill these requirements. To conclude this thesis, it is reflected on the whole design process and an overwiev of the necessary future work needed to completely implement the concentrator is given.
