Image Wavelet Compression Implementation Using a Run-Time Reconfigurable Custom Computing Machine
This thesis presents the design and implementation of the Image Wavelet Compression (IWC) algorithm on Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) by using the run-time reconfigurable custom computing machine design tool Janus. The four routines implementing the IWC are discussed. The structure of Janus is introduced and the IWC implementation design framework to use Janus structure is described in detail. The Janus hardware circuit design model, which has been used in the IWC implementation, is demonstrated here. The hardware implementation results are presented and analyzed, focusing on reconfiguration and computing time. Future research areas are suggested to improve the Janus tool.
