Design and Implementation of a Transport Layer for the Extoll Network Interface in the BrainScaleS Neuromorphic Computing Platform

Master Thesis by Niels Buwen


This work describes the design and implementation of a software library realizing the transport layer for the new Extoll network of the BrainScaleS Neuromorphic Computing Platform and its integration into the existing software stack. The underlying communication protocols are explained in the background chapter as well as the application level functionality that depends on this work. Later we give an overview of the requirements and the design choices concerning the software library followed by their concrete implementation together with sample use and test cases. To conclude the thesis, the current state and the target state are compared accompanied by a list of possible improvements and future work.
