Paper Abstract

The execution of morphological algorithms places a large computational burden on the main processor in an image processing system and requires dedicated hardware. This paper proposes a versatile reconfigurable morphological coprocessor, which is implemented using a static RAM-based FPGA device. The basic architecture and several alternative implementations are presented to illustrate the flexibility of the coprocessor whose architecture is modified under the control of the system's processor without any physical design changes.
