Formalisation of a Visual Environment for Real Time Image Processing in Hardware (VERTIPH)

Abstract

We consider the suitability of three types of language for the implementation of image processing algorithms on FPGAs; Hardware Description Languages, Parallel Language Extensions, Serial Language Extensions. We discuss the requirements for a language for this purpose and identify the weaknesses of four specific languages, VHDL, SystemC, Handel-C, SA-C and Match. Finally, we propose VERTIPH, a new multiple-view visual language that should avoid these weaknesses.
