Model-based synthesis and optimization of static multi-rate image processing algorithms
Abstract—High computational effort in modern image processing applications like medical imaging or high-resolution video processing often demands for massively parallel special purpose architectures in form of FPGAs or ASICs. However, their efficient implementation is still a challenge, as the design complexity causes exploding development times and costs. This paper presents a new design flow which permits to specify, analyze, and synthesize complex image processing algorithms. A novel buffer requirement analysis allows exploiting possible tradeoffs between required communication memory and computational logic for multi-rate applications. The derived schedule and buffer results are taken into account for resource optimized synthesis of the required hardware accelerators. Application to a multi-resolution filter shows that buffer analysis is possible in less than one second and that scheduling alternatives influence the required communication memory by up to 24% and the computati...
