Paper Abstract

Digital image processing, with its ever-growing application base, is placing ever higher demands on processing power, high transmission bandwidth, and large, online storage capacity. The recent availability of algorithm-specific, chip-level devices certainly increases raw throughput, but does not change the eternal compromise of high-performance, application- specific systems with lower-performance, open, versatile solutions. If a wide range of applications is to be dealt with by a single machine then it must be fully programmable. As even the fastest mono-processor today still falls well short of the required performance, the only viable solution seems to be in massive parallelization of easy-to-program processors. This paper presents a fully programmable, complete image processing machine designed to handle 2-D and 3-D applications. Two important aspects of this machine are covered: its internal data transfer and processor architecture; and its open, nonspecific modality interface.
