The Programmable and Configurable Low Level Vision Unit of the HERMIA Machine
In this work the Low Level Vision Unit (LLVU) of the Heterogeneous and Reconfigurable Machine for Image Analysis (HERMIA) is described. The LLVU consists of the innovative integration of six A110DSP (Digital Signal Processing). Two main features have been considered in the design: the generality and the extendibility; the LLVU can be fully programmable and the network interconnection of the IMS A110 can be easily reconfigured by the user. The operator can choose among different options to tailor its applications:single (8 bit) or double (16 bit) precision in data or in the MAC coefficients,producing 22 or 32 bit output, 1 or 2 (cascade or parallel) kernels with programmablewidth and height. GENERAL DESCRIPTION The HERMIA machine: HERMIA is the acronym of Heterogeneous and Reconfigurable Machine for Image Analysis. Its design has been oriented to fit, at the best, image analysis processes with the architecture. The computation paradigm of image analysis, conventionally, follows four ph...
