Embedded Architecture for Real-Time Video Processing

Yahia Said, Taoufik Saidani, Mohamed Atri

Abstract



In this paper we present a Video Processing Platform (VPP) for real-time video processing application. This platform provides a development environment that allows designers to quickly begin to experiment with video processing using the Spartan-3A DSP family of FPGAs. It provides a familiar starting point from which existing processor-based video applications can be ported, or new designs created. The user can build flexible video processing systems that include embedded processors and customized video accelerators and verify video hardware designs in a fraction of the time using hardware co-simulation provided by Xilinx System Generator Tool. Two applications are presented showing the performance and flexibility of the proposed platform: a Prewitt edge detector and DWT2D video wavelet coding.

Keywords


Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA), Real Time Video Processing, Embedded Development Kit (EDK), System Generator (XSG).
