“This thesis focuses on the implementation of a FPGA based processor for processing compressed binary images without decompressing them. The processor implements a systolic algorithm to find the difference between two binary images in Run Length Encoded (RLE) format. 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. The Xilinx PCI LogiCORE is used to interface the processor to the PCI bus. The use of a pre-optimized Intellectual Property core for the PCI bus interface reduces the design cycle time and allows the designer to concentrate on new features to be implemented in the design. The advantages and limitations of design using reusable intellectual property cores are also discussed”--Abstract, page iii.
