VLSI Implementation of Fast Convolution Based 2-D Discrete Wavelet Transform for High Speed, Area Efficient Image Computing
A VLSI design approach of a high speed and real-time 2-D Discrete Wavelet Transform computing is being presented in the paper. The proposed architecture, based on new and fast convolution approach, reduces the hardware complexity in addition to reduce the critical path to the multiplier delay. Furthermore, an advanced Two Dimensional (2-D) Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) implementation, with an efficient memory area, is designed to produce one output in every clock cycle. As a result, a very high speed is attained. The system is verified, using JPEG2000 coefficients filters, on Xilinx Virtex-II Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) device without accessing any external memory.
