Paper Abstract

A fully reconfigurable architecture for realizing thermal imaging system is proposed. This architecture provides a generic solution to any signal processing issues related to thermal imaging and also provides the advantage of low power design and take care of any sensor up-gradation. The proposed architecture is implemented by using Xilinx Virtex II 2000K gate FPGA and 320 x 256 elements InSb IRFPA. The system can store up to six gain and offset tables which can be optimized for different environmental conditions and as well us allow the up-gradation of offset coefficients dynamically. Image frames are presented which shows the successful implementation of the architecture.
