Established Shield Board Gets USB-Enabled Drivers

Developed by ecosystem partner Nepes, NeuroMem Technologies’ NeuroShield is a shield board featuring the NM500 neuromorphic chip with 576 neurons ready to learn and recognize stimuli extracted from any type of sensors including IMU, audio, environmental sensors, bio-signal, video, etc. The company has released new drivers for the board that support USB communications and interfacing. As per Pierre Brunswick, CEO at NeuroMem® Technologies, “The new drivers include the introduction of the USB interface and will help our developer ecosystem leverage our technology to create more applications easily and in very short time. Our unique pattern-learning technology needs input and parameters so that the devices learn continuously.”


NeuroShield is compatible with Arduino, Mbed, Raspberry PI, Pyboard and any microcontrollers which can support SPI communication. Neuromem, with its ecosystem partners and developers, has created a full range of support tools and packages to help hardware vendors develop a complete workflow, allowing for the training of the neurons either in real-time on a board mounted on a microcontroller or off-line connected to a PC, or even a combination of both, since the knowledge built by the neurons is easily traceable and portable.
