Retinal processing is known to condense space, time, and color information into three basic channels known as the rod, magnocellular, and parvoceliular channels. The magnocellular channel executes a spatial band-pass filter in the lower end of the spatial frequency spectrum, and the parvocellular channel executes a spatial band-pass filter in the higher end of the spectrum. In an analogous fashion, conventional wavelet analysis requires separate high-pass and low-pass filtering operations on data. Previous retinal designs have provided these filtering operations seen in natural processors. The rationale for such filters is presented along with concepts for implementing high-speed analog wavelet analyzers. These concepts are built on existing understanding of vision processing and previously demonstrated analog retinal design chips.
