Abstract Scope Neuromorphic spiking networks and associated highly parallel architectures have been the object of much interest in recent years. These systems are expected to complement binary CMOS architectures in applications where substantial amounts of imprecise information have to be processed. Some of the applications where neuromorphic systems could outperform binary architectures include adaptive learning, pattern classification, and outcome prediction. Complex neuromorphic circuits using nanocrystalline-silicon (nc-Si) thin-film transistors (TFTs) and memristive (resistive switch) devices have been fabricated, modeled and simulated. Complex synaptic and learning behavior has been demonstrated as a natural outcome of using these specific devices. The fabrication processes are consistent with the use of glass or flexible substrates. Therefore, the neuromorphic architecture may provide for information processing that is more efficient than that expected for conventional TFT circuitry. The results also demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating a 3-D system with physical structure similar to the human neocortex.
