HackEEG shield for Arduino Due


This is an Arduino Due shield for the TI ADS1299 EEG system-on-a-chip. It is in limited short-run production and is being used in major pharmaceutical and research institutions.


  • Up to 4 shields can be stacked on one Arduino Due, for a total of 32 EEG channels
  • DMA drivers can read data at up to 8,000 samples per second at 24 bit resolution
  • USB 2.0 HS (480Mbps) connectivity when using Arduino Due
  • EEG data can be streamed over the Internet via a phone or laptop connected via USB
  • SPI EEPROM for storing configuration data
  • Jumpers for configuring most of the data and control lines to the Arduino
  • Two systems can be daisy-chained and clock-synchronized to capture 64 EEG channels
  • Also compatible with the Arduino Mega 2560 (voltage-level shifters included on board)
