Image Enhancement using Edge Spartan 6 FPGA Board

Project Code :TVMAFE344


The main objective of this work is to enhance the contrast of the gray image by using hardware software co-simulation for image processing in Xilinx System Generator.


Image Processing is used to modify pictures to improve their quality and extract structured information. Image enhancement methods are used to increase the photographic quality of images. Enhancement can be performed to gray image with size 128 * 128. The main objective of any enhancement method is obtaining a more suitable result compared with the original form. To implement image processing algorithms using high level languages requires thousands of lines of code which is inefficient as it takes more time. Alternate solution is using Xilinx System Generator, which is a modeling tool where design is captured by using Xilinx block set from library environment. This project presents concept of hardware software co-simulation for image processing using Xilinx System Generator (XSG). This technique provides a set of Simulink blocks (models) for several hardware operations that could be implemented on various Xilinx FPGA.
