Abstract

In this paper we present a new dynamic routing algorithm specially implemented for a new electronic tissue called POEtic. This reconfigurable circuit is designed to ease the implementation of bio-inspired systems that bring cellular applications into play. Specifically designed for implementing cellular applications, such as neural networks, this circuit is composed of two main parts: a two-dimensional array of basic elements similar to those found in common commercial FPGAs, and a two-dimensional array of routing units that implement a dynamic routing algorithm which allows the creation of data paths between cells at runtime.
