Inhe moved to Manchester where he leads research into fufber systemslow-power electronics [17] and neural engineeringwhere the Spiking Neural Network Architecture SpiNNaker project is delivering a computer incorporating a million ARM processors optimised for computational neuroscience.

Furber’s most recent project SpiNNaker[3] [25] [26] [27] [28] is an attempt to build a new kind of computer that directly mimics the workings of the human brain. Spinnaker is an artificial neural network realised in hardware, a massively parallel processing system eventually designed to incorporate a million ARM processors. The Spinnaker project [31] aims amongst other things to investigate:.

Professor Furber is distinguished for his fundamental contributions to the design and analysis of electronic systems, especially microprocessors.

He was the original designer of the hardware architecture of the ARM processor, the world’s leading embedded processor core and a major engineering and commercial success for the United Kingdom.

Having moved to Manchester University, he established a research team to investigate asynchronous processor designwhich rapidly made fundamental contributions to the field. He has shown how to combine academic design theories with practical engineering constraints to achieve a remarkable and elegant synthesis.

His work demonstrates in particular how to design zteve with low power and low radio frequency emissions, necessary for future wireless applications. Furber has designed a series of highly original asynchronous processors to execute the ARM instruction set. These have been fabricated and subjected to extensive experimental analysis.

Furber’s group is the world’s leading centre of research in both fundamental theory and engineering implementation of such devices.
