I’ve created a custom neuron type based on the Nengo page describing how to add an object to Nengo. I followed the steps from the Nengo Loihi page to simulate on Loihi but I got an error saying the neuron type cannot be simulated on Loihi and to either switch to a supported neuron type or explicitly mark ensembles as off-chip.
I saw there was a post in February about the same error I got and part of the solution was to configure the ensemble to run off chip or swap the activation with a supported one. However, I do want to use this custom neuron type rather than swap to a supported type and I want to run it on Loihi, not my CPU. In the other post a reply said another option is to register a builder function with the Nengo-Loihi builder to build it into the hardware using Loihi primitives, but that this is pretty involved.
Could you explain how to go about registering such a builder function or if there are other solutions that allow me to simulate my custom neuron type on Loihi?
Thank you very much!
