Rapid silicon design of discrete orthonormal wavelet transforms based algorithms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A methodology has been developed which allows a non-specialist to rapidly design silicon wavelet transform cores for a variety of specifications. The cores include both forward and inverse orthonormal wavelet transforms. This methodology is based on efficient, modular and scaleable architectures utilising time-interleaved coefficients for the wavelet transform filters. The cores are parameterized in terms of wavelet type and data and coefficient word lengths. The designs have been captured in VHDL and are hence portable across a range of silicon foundries as well as FPGA and PLD implementations.
