Implementing Asynchronous Circuits with Neurons

While we normally think of asynchronous circuit design as a method for implementing silicon neurons, the principles of asynchronous design may also be useful for building circuits out of neurons.

For this project, we implemented a simple one-bit asynchronous buffer as a proof of concept. The final model required 2,000 LIF spiking neurons.
