The central component in the SpiNNaker system is the SpiNNaker chip, and the central focus of the SpiNNaker chip is scalability. The key concepts were described in the previous chapter, but now these concepts must be realised in practice. This realisation, which took 40 person-years of design effort and 5 years of elapsed time, is the subject of this chapter.
