Most of the upper limb prosthetic devices are controlled using biological signals, mainly EMG. The main problem with these systems is that the hardware needed for treatment and acquisition of the biosignals are not clear. This paper has presented the design of an interface for acquiring real-time electromyographic signals for a prosthetic upper limb system, considering the stages of acquisition, digitalization and presentation of the information, using a high-speed and high-resolution system. The digitalization system uses a 24-bit, 256-kSPS, 8 channel ADC whose information is read with a SOC ZYNQ-7000 based system, PYNQ. Using the advantages of the PYNQ, the Programmable Logic of the device, ensures the parallel synchronous acquisition, while the Processing System handles the datacasting and the communication of the information.
