With the fast development of Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPA) detectors, high quality real-time image processing becomes more important in infrared imaging system. Facing the demand of better visual effect and good performance, we find FPGA is an ideal choice of hardware to realize image processing algorithm that fully taking advantage of its high speed, high reliability and processing a great amount of data in parallel. In this paper, a new idea of dynamic linear extension algorithm is introduced, which has the function of automatically finding the proper extension range. This image enhancement algorithm is designed in Verilog HDL and realized on FPGA. It works on higher speed than serial processing device like CPU and DSP. Experiment shows that this hardware unit of dynamic linear extension algorithm enhances the visual effect of infrared image effectively.
