The architecture of ACE, a multiprocessor analogic CNN emulator engine consisting of 2 to 16 TMS320C40 floating point DSPs is introduced. The engine containing up to 512 Mbyte RAM (enough to store a 512*512*512* sized CNN cube) can be controlled through its SCSI port. It can either accelerate the multilayer CNN simulator CNNM or be accessed directly from the high level, C-based analogic CNN language ACL to achieve the simulation speed of approx. 2.8 μsec/cell/iteration/DSP for 3*3 linear templates.
