Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) is the part of current reconfigurable computing technology, which is an ideal alternative for image and video processing. Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) technology became a viable target for implementation of real time algorithms suited to video processing application. A comprehensive method of implementation of the Sobel edge detection algorithm for low power consumption and fast performance using FPGA has been presented in this paper. The image pixel values are sent to the FPFA from PC through serial communication. Matlab GUI is used to interface PC and FPGA. The image pixels are converted to binary format.
