    QKeras: a quantization deep learning library for Tensorflow Keras

    I would check out hls4ml. It's an open source project made by/for people at CERN to convert neural networks created in Python using QKeras (a quantization extension of Keras) into HLS, with Vivado HLS being the most well supported. There are some caveats though, and a fellow student and I have had trouble getting the generated HLS to match the Keras model and be feasible to synthesize, but it seems to work well for smaller neural networks.
