Specialized logic to accomplish image processing has been available since the early 1960's. Systems like CELLSCAN, GLOPR, and diff3 have the capability to perform, (respectively) at least 103, 105 and 107 picture point or pixel operations per second using a local organization of inputs to each gate. This kind of image processing system has been known as cellular logic. The term goes back to the early days of computers through the work of von Neumann [1,2] and Moore [3] on automata; a recent survey paper co-authored by one of us [4] discusses cellular logic and applications in medical image processing. Neighborhood processing is a similar term used to describe a system with pipelining added to conserve the number of gates needed; see [5].
