This paper introduces the ubichip, a custom reconfigurable electronic device capable of implementing bioinspired circuits featuring growth, learning, and evolution. The ubichip is developed in the framework of Perplexus, a European project that aims to develop a scalable hardware platform made of bio-inspired custom reconfigurable devices for simulating large-scale complex systems. In this paper, we describe the configurability and architectural mechanisms that will allow the implementation of evolvable and developmental cellular and neural systems in an efficient way. These mechanisms are dynamic routing, selfreconfiguration, and a neural-friendly logic cell’s architecture.
