Paper Abstract

In this paper we systematically synthesize a mesh-type VLSI application specific array architecture for real-time morphological image processing. The array can perform dilations, erosion or successive combinations of the two (opening and closing) at video rates. The 2-D image can be gray-level (or binary) and the structuring element of any arbitrary shape, as long as its bounding box is known. A partitioning scheme is proposed that can be used to decompose and match the large size problem to a smaller target array.
