Paper Abstract

We have developed a novel architecture to process 2-dimensional digital image data with very high speed. The architecture is realized with an FPGA to extract only the X-ray signals from the raw frame data of an X-ray CCD for an astronomical use. The circuit scale is small enough to be implemented in an FPGA currently available for a space use, while the data processing speed of 107 pixels/sec is achieved. The architecture can be adapted in principle to a wide range of applications.
