Image Denoising in FPGA using Generic Risk Estimation

  title={Image Denoising in FPGA using Generic Risk Estimation},
  author={Rinson Varghese},
The generic risk estimator addresses the problem of denoising images corrupted by additive white noise without placing any restriction on the statistical distribution of the noise. In this paper, we discuss an efficient FPGA implementation of this algorithm. We use the undecimated Haar wavelet transform with shrinkage parameters for each sub-band as the denoising function. The computational complexity and memory requirement of the algorithm is first analyzed. To optimize the performance, a… 

Signal-to-Noise Ratio Comparison of Several Filters against Phantom Image
