Hi ,


I have an algorithm in matlab for image segmentation.My goal is to to implement it on FPGA . Could any body please tell me steps to implement image segmentation program on FPGA.
Do I need to write the VHDL program to implement it on FPGA or Is there any approach to generate VHDL code from matlab code .

Please help me, I am confused about how to start.

Thank you,
srikanth parupati

Re: How to implement image segmentation algorithm on FPGA ki

Hi

In general mapping sequential code (matlab) on a parallel FPGA in een efficient way is extremely difficult. People have been dreaming of it (the silicon compiler) for 30 years.

However, in a simulink model you can express parallelism so that is a lot easier to mapon an FPGA. Both xilinx and altera have tools for this:

http://www.altera.com/products/software/products/dsp/dsp-builder.html

I have never used these tools, but I'm sure they are a lot easier then learning VHDL.
