Design and Implementation of an FPGA-based Processor for Compressed Images
This paper deals with the implementation of a systolic array architecture in hardware using FPGAs for processing compressed binary images without decompressing them. Specifically, run-length encoding (RLE) is used for compression. Processing images in compressed form provides a significant speedup in the computation. Using a systolic architecture and implementing it in hardware further increases the speed.
