Instituto de Microelectrónica de Sevilla (IMSE) 

The IMSE NEUROMORPHIC SYSTEMS GROUP participates in SpinAge with the design of a gold-standard CMOS-based Neuromorphic Computing (NCS) system, which will be used for some basic learning and classification task and will be used as comparison with the performances obtained with the SpinAge neuromorphic system. The IMSE neuromorphic group will also contribute to the design of PCBs and CMOS interfaces between the different NCS components.

IMSE (Instituto de Microelectrónica de Sevilla) is a research center partnered by the Spanish Research Council and the University of Seville. The institute was established in 1989 and it is devoted to research and development in design-and-test of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits, FPGAs, and software tools for hardware developments. The personnel at IMSE is composed of 32 PhD senior staff members, 37 postdocs/graduates, 15 technicians and 8 administrators, and its activity is devoted to research, teaching at the University of Seville, and technology transfer to industry. Research activities in IMSE include analog, digital and mixed-signal design, High resolution and High Speed A/D Converters, Vision Systems, Neuromorphic Circuits and Systems, Address-Event-Representation retina sensing and convolution processing, Asynchronous or Self-timed Circuit Design, interface design for microsystems, test, and CAD tools.
