SKU: ns-hdk_zynq-1 Category:


NeuroShield board with a digital neural network of 576 neurons accessible through SPI or USB2 communication with:

1) Software and drivers for use as a shield for ZYNQ development boards:

  • NeuroShield embedded system file for ZYNQ7000 SOCs integrating an SPI interface to the neurons (*.hd file) for the platforms listed below
  • Simple standalone project including the NeuroMem API in C/C++ and a simple script generating patterns programmatically and demonstrating how to teach the neurons and query them for classification, save and restore the knowledge that they build.
  • Complete Vivado project (** optional use to adapt to your own ZYNQ platform; version 2018.3)

(2) Software and drivers for use as a shield with SPI interface to Arduino, Raspberry Pi and other microcontrollers;

  • Arduino libraries and examples
  • Python examples for Rapsberry Pi
  • C/C++ library and examples

(3) Suite of three software packages interfacing to the NeuroShield via its USB serial port:



  • Xilinx SDK 2018.3
  • Vivado 2018.3 or newer if you do not use one of the tested platforms(**)

Tested ZYNQ platforms:

  • Digilent Arty Z7 (switches & leds, Gige, HDMI, audio, pmods, SD card, etc)
  • Avnet MiniZed (switches & leds, wifi, pmods, etc)
  • HDK comes with Vivado and SDK project

Can be edited to support other ZYNQ7000 development boards.
