However, current neuromorphic electrical computing systems have their own limitations, which is why the NEUROPULS project is developing next-generation low-power and secure edge-computing systems. By utilizing novel photonic computing architectures and security layers based on photonic PUFs, augmented silicon photonics CMOS-compatible platforms, and emerging non-volatile phase change materials, this project aims to demonstrate a two-order of magnitude improvement in energy efficiency. With RISC-V compliant interfaces and a novel full-system simulation platform, NEUROPULS will revolutionize the future of computing.

 

  • Objective 1: Development of a CMOS-compatible platform addressing the integration of silicon photonics with PCMs and III-V materials
  • Objective 2: Development of a low-power and secure RISC-V interfaced neuromorphic accelerator based on the integration of silicon photonics, novel PCMs, and Q-switched III-V lasers
  • Objective 3: Development of a system-level simulation platform for PCM-based photonic low-power accelerators using photonic security layers
