This paper studies synchronization phenomena in a ring-coupled system of digital spiking neurons. The neuron consists of two shift registers connected by a wiring circuit and can generate various spike-trains. Applying a spike based connection, the ring-coupled system is constructed. The ring-coupled system can generate multi-phase synchronization phenomena of various periodic spike-trains. Using a simple dynamic model, existence and stability of the synchronization phenomena are analyzed. Presenting a FPGA based test circuit, typical synchronization phenomena are confirmed experimentally.
