A versatile reconfigurable accelerator architecture for binary/ternary deep neural networks is presented. In-memory neural network processing without any external data accesses, sustained by the symmetry and simplicity of the computation of the binary/ternaty neural network, improves the energy efficiency dramatically. The prototype chip is fabricated, and it achieves 1.4 TOPS (tera operations per second) peak performance with 0.6-W power consumption at 400-MHz clock. The application examination is also conducted.
