Contribution to Conference
This paper details the design of an integrate fire (I F) neuron ASIC and its integration with a double barrier memristor device. The memristor has a non-volatile analog memory characteristic which changes with time and voltage. The neuron ASIC is designed to interact with the memristor by integrating its current and firing when a certain threshold is reached. The resulting spikes increase the memristor's conductance and consequently the firing rate of neuron increases. Together, the ASIC and the memristor mimics neuromorphic learning on hardware. The ASIC has been fabricated in AMS 350nm process.
