Abstract

This report deals with the efficient mapping of sparse neural networks on CNS-1. We develop parallel vector code for an idealized sparse network and determine its performance under three memory systems. We use the code to evaluate the memory systems (one of which will be implemented in the prototype), and to pinpoint bottlenecks in the current CNS-1 design.
