  • Abstract The design of a high performance digital architecture for computing 2-D convolution, utilizing the quadrant symmetry of the kernels, is proposed in this paper. Pixels in the four quadrants of the kernel region, with respect to an image pixel, are considered simultaneously for computing the partial products of the convolution sum. A novel data handling strategy, to identify pixels to be fed to different processing elements, helps reduce the data storage requirements significantly in the… CONTINUE READING
