The work presented in this paper lays the foundation for the development of an end-to-end system design methodology for implementing wavelet domain image/video processing algorithms in hardware using Xilinx field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). With the integration of the Xilinx System Generator toolbox, this methodology will allow algorithm developers to design and implement their code using the familiar MATLAB/Simulink development environment. By using this methodology, algorithm developers will not be required to become proficient in the intricacies of hardware design, thus reducing the design cycle and time-to-market.
