Paper Abstract

The Accurate Automation Corporation (AAC) neural network processor (NNP) module is a fully programmable multiple instruction multiple data (MIMD) parallel processor optimized for the implementation of neural networks. The AAC NNP design fully exploits the intrinsic sparseness of neural network topologies. Moreover, by using a MIMD parallel processing architecture one can update multiple neurons in parallel with efficiency approaching 100 percent as the size of the network increases. Each AAC NNP module has 8 K neurons and 32 K interconnections and is capable of 140,000,000 connections per second with an eight processor array capable of over one billion connections per second.
