Submit a ticket if you have any questions or want help.

Some key features include:

* Optimized back ends for CUDA, KNL and AVX2 intrinsics.
* Asynchronous spike exchange that overlaps compute and communication.
* Efficient sampling of voltage and current on all back ends.
* Efficient implementation of all features on GPU.
* Reporting of memory and energy consumption (when available on platform).
* An API for addition of new cell types, e.g. LIF and Poisson spike generators.
* Validation tests against numeric/analytic models and NEURON.
