Title (EN) NEURAL NETWORK PROCESSOR
(FR) PROCESSEUR DE RÉSEAU NEURONAL
Abstract:
(EN) Each processor of the SIMD array performs the computations for a respective neuron of a neural network. As part of this computation, each processor of the SIMD array multiplies an input to a weight and accumulates the result for its assigned neuron each (MAC) instruction cycle. A table in a first memory is used to store which input is fed to each processor of the SIMD array. A crossbar is used to route a specific input to each processor each MAC cycle. A second memory is used to provide the appropriate weight to each processor that corresponds the input being routed to that processor.
(FR) Chaque processeur du réseau SIMD selon l'invention effectue les calculs pour un neurone respectif d'un réseau neuronal. En tant que partie de ce calcul, chaque processeur du réseau SIMD multiplie une entrée à un poids et accumule le résultat pour chaque cycle d'instruction du neurone qui lui est attribué (MAC). Une table dans une première mémoire est utilisée pour stocker l'entrée qui est fournie à chaque processeur du réseau SIMD. Une barre transversale est utilisée pour acheminer une entrée spécifique vers chaque processeur pour chaque cycle MAC. Une seconde mémoire est utilisée pour fournir le poids approprié à chaque processeur qui correspond à l'entrée qui est acheminée vers ce processeur.
