Abstract
PNG (Portable Network Graphics) is a lossless compression method for real-world pictures. Since its specification, it continues to attract the interest of the image processing community. Indeed, PNG is an extensible file format for portable and well-compressed storage of raster images. In addition, it supports all of Black and White (binary mask), grayscale, indexed-color, and truecolor images. Within the framework of the Demat+ project which intend to propose a complete solution for storage and retrieval of scanned documents, we address in this paper a hardware design to accelerate the PNG encoder for binary mask compression on FPGA. For this, an optimized architecture is proposed as part of an hybrid software and hardware co-operating system. For its evaluation, the new designed PNG IP has been implemented on the ALTERA Arria II GX EP2AGX125EF35" FPGA. The experimental results show a good match between the achieved compression ratio, the computational cost and the used hardware resources.
