Book Description

Dr Donald Bailey starts with introductory material considering the problem of embedded image processing, and how some of the issues may be solved using parallel solutions. Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are introduced as a that provides flexible, fine-grained hardware that can readily exploit parallelism within many image processing algorithms. A brief review of FPGA programming languages provides the link between a software mindset normally associated with image processing algorithms, and the hardware mindset required for efficient utilization of a parallel hardware design. The design process for implementing an image processing algorithm on an FPGA is compared with that for a conventional software implementation, with the key differences highlighted. Particular attention is given to the techniques for mapping an algorithm onto an FPGA implementation, considering timing, memory bandwidth and resource constraints, and efficient hardware computational techniques. Extensive coverage is given of a range of low and intermediate level image processing operations, discussing efficient implementations and how these may vary according to the application. The techniques are illustrated with several example applications or case studies from or applications he has been involved with. Issues such as interfacing between the FPGA and peripheral devices are covered briefly, as is designing the system in such a way that it can be more readily debugged and tuned.

  • Provides a bridge between algorithms and hardware
  • Demonstrates how to avoid many of the potential pitfalls
  • Offers practical recommendations and solutions
  • Illustrates several real-world applications and case studies
  • Allows those with software backgrounds to understand efficient hardware implementation

Design for Embedded Image Processing on FPGAsis ideal for researchers and engineers in the vision or image processing industry, who are looking at smart , machine vision, and robotic vision, as well as FPGA developers and application engineers.

The book can also be used by graduate students studying imaging , computer engineering, digital design, design, or computer science.
