Paper Abstract

Blood samples are frequently analyzed for the blood disorders or other diseases in the research and clinic applications. Most of the analyses are related to blood cell counts and blood cell sizes. In this paper, the line scan CCD imaging system is developed, which is based on the Texas Instruments' TMS320C6416T (DSP6416), a high performance digital signal processor and Altera's Field programmable Gate Array (FPGA) EP3C25F324. It is used to acquire and process the images of blood cells for counting the number of cells, sizing and positioning them. The cell image is captured by line scan CCD sensor and then the digital image data converted by Analogue Front-End (AFE) are transferred into FPGA, after pre-processing they are transferred into DSP6416 through the interface of First In First Out (FIFO) in FPGA and External Memory Interfaces (EMIF) of DSP6416. Then the image data are processed in DSP6416. Experimental results show that this system is useful and efficient.
