Introduction to Neuromorphic Communication
The somewhat artificial term “Neuromorphic Communication” indicates the aim of transmitting information similar to our neural system. The “spiky” information coding found in our nerve-fibers seems to be quite inadequate for microelectronics. With a limited dynamic range of two to three orders of magnitude and poor noise margins, this kind of information coding may look like a bad choice from an engineering perspective.
