A System to Simulate Differential Equations for Image Processing
A system for simulating a large number of differential equations in a short period of time was needed to quickly process video for an image recognition device. This system can be realized using DSP (Digital Signal Processing) chips in parallel and controlling them with a memory manage. The memory manager divides the work among the DSPs and then gathers up the solutions for the host computer. Even though this system is designed primarily for image processing, the differential equation simulation could be expanded to include a wide range of non-linear partial differential equations (PDE). The system has a high degree of parallelism and is easily expandable.
