Chapter 5: Description and Applications of a CMOS Digital Vision Chip Using General Purpose Processing Elements
With the progress of silicon integration technologies, visual information processing architecture has changed greatly. Eventually it will be integrated into compact and yet high-performance integrated circuits. In other words, the image processor is no longer considered desktop-sized bulky equipment, but rather as a chip information processing module where photodetector and processing circuits are integrated. This chapter discusses the processing architecture for visual information processing in terms of the integrated massively parallel processing. A vision chip with general purpose processing elements is described, and some examples of 1-ms image processing using the architecture is shown. The sampling rate of 1-ms leads to a new generation of image processing technology.
