The Nengo team at ABR is pleased to announce the release of Nengo Loihi 0.8.
What is Nengo Loihi?
Nengo Loihi is a backend for the Nengo neural simulator allowing standard spiking Nengo models to run on Intel’s new Loihi neuromorphic chip. Nengo Loihi includes an emulator so that you can develop spiking neuron models for Loihi without having access to hardware.
How do I use it?
Once installed, Nengo Loihi simulates Nengo networks. After defining your network, instead of simulating it with
and that’s it!
The only change in version 0.8.0 is to support NxSDK version 0.8.5. If you are using an earlier version of NxSDK, please use an earlier version of Nengo Loihi, as we do not maintain backwards compatibility with earlier versions on NxSDK.
How do I get it?
If you are using the emulator, then you can simply use
pip install nengo-loihi
If you are setting up Nengo Loihi to use Loihi hardware for the first time, see the Nengo Loihi installation instructions.
