Morphic architectures embrace a broad class of mixed-signal systems that focus on a particular application and draw inspiration for their structure from the application. In some cases, processing is carried out in the analog domain, offering orders-of-magnitude improvement in performance and power dissipation, albeit with reduced accuracy.
