In this chapter, authors present the novel employment of swarm intelligence in the constraint design of spiking neurons and synapses for advanced and technology agnostic sensor signal conditioning and conversion. Manual design activities, leading to proof-of-principle circuits and a first chip, are used as specifications and baseline for the optimized designs pursued in our correspondingly extended ABSYNTH design environment.
