This paper discusses a two-level compilation scheme used for generating high-speed binary image morphology pipelines from a textual description of the algorithm. The first-level compiler generates a generic morphology machine which is customized for the specified set of instructions by the second-level compiler. Because the generic machine is reused, we are able to avoid long synthesis times and achieve compile times similar to software compile times, while still achieving a 10X speed-up over… CONTINUE READING
