Abstract / Bemerkung
Many subsystems in the brain require an estimate of neural activity to function properly. For example, models of neural homeostasis and synaptic plasticity incorporate these estimates. Here we present a method for estimating a neuromorphic neuron’s firing rate using floating-gate transistors. This technology allows for the long time constants required for rate estimation and homeostatic plasticity. As a neuron fires, the floating-gate’s terminals are modified such that the steady-state voltage on the floating-gate represents an estimate of the neuron’s firing rate. The primary benefits of this scheme are low power consumption and compactness.
