Paper Abstract

Because it is nearly impossible with todays technology to make a processor which is optimised for all possible image processing tasks one tries to realize different processors each of them being a compromise between technology, processing speed and class of operations that must be performed optimaly. This paper describes a hardware module to be part of a general image computer that is being developed in our laboratory. The design of this single board module was started to provide us with a flexible and high speed processor reprogrammable for several classes of image operations. To some extend this processor will be useful in hierarchical structures which seem to be very promising concepts at our days.
