An image (from Latin imago) is an artifact, for example a two-dimensional picture, that has a similar appearance to some subject—usually a physical object or a person Images may be two-dimensional, such as a photograph, screen display, and as well as a three-dimensional, such as a statue. They may be captured by optical devices— such as cameras, mirrors, lenses, telescopes, microscopes, etc. and natural objects and phenomena, such as the human eye or water surfaces. The word image is also used in the broader sense of any two-dimensional figure such as a map, a graph, a pie chart, or an abstract painting. In this wider sense, images can also be rendered manually, such as by drawing, painting, carving, rendered automatically by printing or computer graphics technology, or developed by a combination of methods, especially in a pseudo-photograph. A volatile image is one that exists only for a short period of time. This may be a reflection of an object by a mirror, a projection of a camera obscura, or a scene displayed on a cathode ray tube. A fixed image, also called a hard copy, is one that has been recorded on a material object, such as paper or textile by photography or digital processes.
1.1.1 STILL IMAGE
A still image is a single static image, as distinguished from a moving image (see below). This phrase is used in photography, visual media and the computer industry to emphasize that one is not talking about movies, or in very precise or pedantic technical writing such as a standard. A film still is a photograph taken on the set of a movie or television program during production, used for promotional purposes.

A moving image is typically a movie (film), or video, including digital video. It could also be an animated display such as a zoetrope.
1.1.3 IMAGE FILE SIZE
Image file size—expressed as the number of bytes—increases with the number of pixels composing an image, and the colour depth of the pixels. The greater the number of rows and columns, the greater the image resolution, and the larger the file. Also, each pixel of an image increases in size when its colour depth increases—an 8-bit pixel (1 byte) stores 256 colors, a 24-bit pixel (3 bytes) stores 16 million colaors, the latter known as true color.
1.2 IMAGE COMPRESSION
Image compression, the art science of reducing the amount of data required to representation image, is one of the most useful and commercially successful technologies in tke field of digital image processing. The number of images that are compressed and decompressed daily is staggering, and the compressions and decompressions are virtually invisible to the user. Anyone who owns a digital camera, surfs the web, or watches the latest Hollywood movies on digital video disks(dvds) benefits from the algorithms and standards discussed in this section. Compression is basically of two types: Lossy Compression Lossless Compression. Dept of E&C, Sir MVIT, Bengaluru Page 3

An image reconstructed following lossy compression contains degradation relative to the original. Often this is because the compression scheme completely discards redundant information. Bengaluru Page 4 .Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression Lossy compression of data concedes a certain loss of accuracy in exchange for greatly increased compression.

As wireless channels are very noisy and have narrow bandwidth.4 Wavelets in Neural Networks Neural Networks (NN) have emerged as a powerful tool for data mining applications due to their ability to learn patterns and relationships in complex. design and measurement of antennas have been extremely important in the development and success of wireless communication and applications. Sir MVIT. The effectiveness of any NN-based solution is largely dependent on a range of factors such as scalability of the network. aids in reducing errors as well as enables us to get closer to the true values of such computation. As such. video streaming and the image compression techniques are very important for wireless application to transmit multimedia content over wireless channels. Use of wavelets in conjunction with other techniques in the numerical methods involved in solving the current distribution on the antenna offers many advantages. 1. 1. The use of wavelets in such simulations propose reduction in computation. Unfortunately mathematical simulations of antenna are extremely complex and require extensive computation and large amount of memory.4.

JPEG has both its advantages and disadvantages: 2.split by red. data can be removed without completely changing the image. Because the human eye does not pick up subtle color distinctions and high frequency brightness variations.3 ADVANTAGES OF JPEG Large compression ratios = shorter file transfer time Full-color information Great for photographs.

Figure 2.g.2 : COMPRESSION (ENCODING AND DECODING) Conventional methods of lossless compression such as Zip reversibly reduce file sizes while preserving information by compacting regularities in the data. In fact. the graceful ability of the design to handle a very large range of effective bit rates is one of the strengths of JPEG 2000. The aims of JPEG 2000 are not only improved compression performance over JPEG but also adding (or improving) features such as scalability and edit ability.

The improvements in the “near visually lossless” realm are more modest (approximately 20%).4 Implications JPEG-2000 is unlikely to replace JPEG in low complexity applications at bit rates in the range where JPEG performs well. the largest improvements are observed at very high and very low bitrates.

They have their energy concentrated in time or space and are suited to analysis of transient signals.1 Demonstration of (a) a Wave and (b) a Wavelet The wavelet analysis is done similar to the STFT analysis. the Wavelet Transform gives good frequency resolution and poor time resolution.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression 3. at high frequencies. the Wavelet Transform uses wavelets of finite energy. which can also be used to analyze non-stationary signals. the Wavelet Transform uses multi-resolution technique by which different frequencies are analyzed with different resolutions. Bengaluru Page 17 . wavelets are localized waves. A wave is an oscillating function of time or space and is periodic. It was developed to overcome the short coming of the Short Time Fourier Transform (STFT). the width of the wavelet function changes with each spectral component. While Fourier Transform and STFT use waves to analyze signals. The Wavelet Transform provides a time-frequency representation of the signal. The signal to be analyzed is multiplied with a wavelet function just as it is multiplied with a window function in STFT. unlike STFT. while at low frequencies. Dept of E&C. It does not change the information content present in the signal. In contrast. The Wavelet Transform. in Wavelet Transform. However. and then the transform is computed for each segment generated. Figure3.1 INTRODUCTION The transform of a signal is just another form of representing the signal. gives good time resolution and poor frequency resolution. Sir MVIT. While STFT gives a constant resolution at all frequencies.
The above analysis becomes very useful as in most practical applications.1) The mother wavelet used to generate all the basis functions is designed based on some desired characteristics associated with that function. The sampling rate can be changed accordingly with scale change without violating the Nyquist criterion. Large scales (low frequencies) dilate the signal and provide detailed information hidden in the signal. Bengaluru Page 18 . Nyquist criterion states that. Notice that the Wavelet Transform merely performs the convolution operation of the signal and the basis function... but instead. as the scale goes higher (lower frequencies).Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression 3..1. while low frequencies (high scales) usually last for entire duration of the signal. The scale parameter s is defined as |1/frequency| and corresponds to frequency information.. Dept of E&C. The Wavelet Series is obtained by discretizing CWT. where ω is the highest frequency in the signal. Sir MVIT. the minimum sampling rate that allows reconstruction of the original signal is 2ω radians. This aids in computation of CWT using computers and is obtained by sampling the time-scale plane.2 CONTINUOUS WAVELET TRANSFORM AND WAVELET SERIES The Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) is provided by equation 2. . where x(t) is the signal to be analyzed... high frequencies (low scales) do not last for a long duration.. appear as short bursts. the sampling rate can be decreased thus reducing the number of computations.. it corresponds to the time information in the Wavelet Transform. while small scales (high frequencies) compress the signal and provide global information about the signal. All the wavelet functions used in the transformation are derived from the mother wavelet through translation (shifting) and scaling (dilation or compression). The translation parameter τ relates to the location of the wavelet function as it is shifted through the signal.. Therefore...(3. Scaling either dilates (expands) or compresses a signal. Thus. ψ(t) is the mother wavelet or the basis function.
4 Filter Banks 3. The foundations of DWT go back to 1976 when techniques to decompose discrete time signals were devised . In the case of DWT. which is a measure of the amount of detail information in the signal. The DWT is computed by successive lowpass and highpass filtering of the discrete time-domain signal as shown in figure 2. Its significance is in the manner it connects the continuousDept of E&C. the signals are analyzed using a set of basis functions which relate to each other by simple scaling and translation.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression 3. depending on the resolution required. which is based on sub-band coding is found to yield a fast computation of Wavelet Transform. 3. Later many improvements were made to these coding schemes which resulted in efficient multi-resolution analysis schemes.2. a time-scale representation of the digital signal is obtained using digital filtering techniques. Sir MVIT. is determined by the filtering operations. The resolution of the signal. It is easy to implement and reduces the computation time and resources required. Wavelets can be realized by iteration of filters with rescaling.4. The Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). Bengaluru Page 19 . a technique similar to sub-band coding was developed which was named pyramidal coding. The signal to be analyzed is passed through filters with different cutoff frequencies at different scales. Similar work was done in speech signal coding which was named as sub-band coding.3 DWT The Wavelet Series is just a sampled version of CWT and its computation may consume significant amount of time and resources. In CWT.1 Multi-Resolution Analysis using Filter Banks Filters are one of the most widely used signal processing functions. This is called the Mallat algorithm or Mallat-tree decomposition. and the scale is determined by upsampling and downsampling (subsampling) operations. In 1983.
the half band filters produce signals spanning only half the frequency band.1(d) of Chapter 1. the time resolution becomes arbitrarily good at high frequencies. while the half band low pass filtering removes half of the frequencies and thus halves the resolution. The low pass filter is denoted by G while the high 0 pass filter is denoted by H .2: Three level decomposition tree At each decomposition level. then it now has a highest frequency of ω/2 radians. while the low pass filter associated with scaling function produces coarse approximations. The DWT of the original signal is then obtained by concatenating all the coefficients. In accordance with Nyquist‟s rule if the original signal has a highest frequency of ω. The maximum number of levels depends on the length of the signal. The time-frequency plane is thus resolved as shown in figure 1.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression time mutiresolution to discrete-time filters. a[n] and d[n]. the high pass filter produces detail information. starting from the last level of decomposition. This decimation by 2 halves the time resolution as the entire signal is now represented by only half the number of samples. where n is an integer. a[n]. 0 d[n]. while the frequency resolution becomes arbitrarily good at low frequencies. At each level. the signal is denoted by the sequence x[n]. which requires a sampling frequency of 2ω radians. Bengaluru Page 20 . the decimation by 2 doubles the scale. Figure 3. With this approach. Thus. Dept of E&C. In the figure. The filtering and decimation process is continued until the desired level is reached. Sir MVIT. This doubles the frequency resolution as the uncertainity in frequency is reduced by half. It can now be sampled at a frequency of ω radians thus discarding half the samples with no loss of information.

G and H . it is required that the original signal be synthesized from the wavelet coefficients. It can be observed that the perfect reconstruction condition does not change if we switch the analysis and synthesis filters. Bengaluru Page 21 .

This process is continued through the same number of levels as in the decomposition process to obtain the original signal. 11 3. To achieve perfect reconstruction the analysis and synthesis filters have to satisfy certain conditions. The approximation and detail coefficients at every level are up-sampled by two. Then the filters have to satisfy the following two conditions as given in equation : G (-z) =G (z) + H (-z). H (z) = 2z 0 1 0 1 The first condition implies that the reconstruction is aliasing-free and the second condition implies that the amplitude distortion has amplitude of one.

The two analysis filters can be symmetric with odd length or one symmetric and the other antisymmetric with even length.3) The two filters are alternated flip of each other.. Also.3 Classification of Wavelets We can classify wavelets into two classes: (a) orthogonal and (b) biorthogonal. Also. ΣG[k] H[k-2l] = 0. the synthesis filters are identical to the analysis filters except for a time reversal. Sir MVIT. But not all of them give accurate Wavelet Transforms. The accuracy of the Wavelet Transform can be determined after reconstruction by calculating the Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) of the signal. Some applications like pattern recognition do not need reconstruction.. where k. the low pass and the high pass filters do not have the same length.e. G and the high pass filter. The filters are of the same length and are not symmetric. Filters that satisfy equation are known as Conjugate Mirror Filters (CMF). This property is useful in many signal and image processing applications.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression There are a number of filters which satisfy these conditions. for a shift by two is zero. the above conditions need not apply. while the high pass filter could be either symmetric or anti-symmetric. for perfect reconstruction.

LH (Low-High) and HH (High-High). thereby getting the low frequency components of the row. This procedure is done for all rows.1 DWT of an image A low pass filter and a high pass filter are chosen.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression 4. thereby resulting in a pyramidal decomposition as shown.

The LL band at the highest level can be classified as most important and the other detail bands can be classified as of lesser importance. This can be done up to any level.Low). Now the high pass filter is applied for the same row of data. such that they exactly Halve the frequency range between themselves. each labeled as LL(low. so that the output data now contains only half the original number of samples. Sir MVIT. with the degree of importance decreasing from the top of the pyramid to the bands at the bottom. the output data contains frequencies only in the first half of the original frequency range. The LL band can be decomposed once again in the same manner. and similarly the high pass components are separated and placed by the side of the low pass components. So they can be sub sampled by two. The filter pass is called the analysis filter pair. the filtering is done for each column of the intermediate data. First the low pass filter is applied for each row of data.
it is possible. Just as a forward transform is used to separate the image data into various classes of importance a reverse transform is used to reassemble the various classes of data into a reconstructed image. Then filter pair is called the synthesis filter pair. it is not possible to differentiate between coefficients as more important ones. and lesser important ones. apply the filters column wise first and then row wise and proceed to the next level. But thinking more intuitively.2 INVERSE DWT OF AN IMAGE. Technically. Bengaluru Page 26 . An image is represented as a two dimensional (2D) array of coefficients. Sir MVIT. The low frequency components (smooth variations) constitute the base of an image. Most natural images have smooth color variations. A pair of high pass and low pass filters is used here also. each coefficient representing the brightness level in that point. When looking from a higher perspective. In this section the theoretical background and algorithm development is discussed. in a thesis by Alfred Haar.1:Image encoding. The first recorded mention of what is now called a "wavelet" seems to be in 1909. We start from the topmost level.

The two-dimensional discrete wavelet transform (2D DWT) plays a major role in image/video compression standard. 4. high efficiency and low-cost hardware is indispensable. Wavelets decompose the signal at one level of approximation and detail signals at the next level. The main advantage of distributed arithmetic approach is that it speeds up the multiply process by pre-computing all the possible medium values and storing these values in a ROM. Because this. there will be N/2 averages and N/2 detail values. The averages are stored in the upper half and the details are stored in the lower half of the N element array. such as JPEG2000 and MPEG4. s1.3. The Forward transform can be done in two ways.

DISTRIBUTED ARITHMETIC FOR DWT With the rapid progress of VLSI design technologies.g. We proposed an efficient 2D DWT architecture based on distributed arithmetic. Because extensive computation is involved in the practical applications. Thus subsequent levels can add more details to the information content. fast algorithms and specific circuits for DWT have been developed. Bengaluru Page 29 . e. such as computer graphics. Distributed arithmetic (DA) was proposed about two decades ago and has since used widely in VLSI implementations of DSP architectures. many processors based on audio and image signal processing have been developed recently. These applications require real-time manipulation of digital images. Most of these applications are computation intensive with multiplication and/or addition being the predominant operation. research on the DWT is attracting a great deal of attention. The input data can then be used to directly address the memory and the result. The architecture of the 2D DWT is mainly composed of the multi-rate filters. the DWT has important applications in many areas. In this section. Presently. In the FDWT.

It consists of the SISO‟s and the ROM Where the number of SISO registers depend upon the filters employed for particular application. 1-bit of data is serially fed for each clock pulse into the SISO register and shifting operation (i.e, either left or right shift) is performed.at the end of the operation 1-bit output is serially fed out of the register. ROM contains the mappable-coefficients.In other words the LSB‟s(least significant bits) of all the input samples are mapped over to ROM for corresponding coefficients.If LSB‟s match altogether with the ROM contents,then the corresponding coefficient will be given as output

For the VLSI implementation of an image compression encoder. speed and simplicity advantage over any other method based on implementations. atleast theoretically.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression 8. The proposed theoretical benefits of DA are realizing the full potential of FPGA architecture for hardware implementation and achieving large parallelism. Modifications on the padding style showed reduction in the error. Bengaluru Page 66 . and as such the accumulator stage becomes the performance bottleneck. The sparse set of coefficients is encoded via Sparse PCA. 8. Wavelet Transform had been used profusely for image compression tasks. keeping the size of the transform coefficient matrix equal to the image size. Verilog HDL was chosen. In light of the implementation results it is clear that DA based architectures have an area. Dept of E&C. It is in this context. The first step of the scheme is to use a sparsifying transform on the image. It has also been observed that implementation of large adders in FPGAs with fast carry chains is quite fast and the adder delay scales up less than linearly with increasing word lengths. even for small word lengths. It also supports faithful reproduction of the image.2 Scope for Future work The newly developed concept of „sparsity‟ in signal processing can be used in the context of Image Compression.1 Conclusion An image compression algorithm was simulated using Matlab to comprehend the process of image compression. The partial reconstruction error from wavelet coefficients is an order of magnitude higher than the ideal error rate for many critical application. since the reconstruction error rate with curvelet coefficients is of the same asymptotic order as that of the ideal error rate. because it offers a better reproduction of image at its edges. we can say that DA implementations are superior when targeting FPGAs. But the choice is not the ideal one. Image compression can be carried in the curvelet domain—a better choice compared to wavelets. The relative area and speed efficiencies of DA turns out to be good on hardware implementation on FPGA. DA approach can achieve near to maximum clock rates possible with a given FPGA technology using only basic 4-LUT based blocks and the fast ripple carry chains while the multi stage modulo adders required in RNS implementation are slow.

Such PGAs are called FPGAs since they are field programmable. We can program the functions realized by each logic cell and connections between the cells. In most FPGAs these programmable logic components also include memory elements. which may be simple flip-flops or more programmable logic components also include memory elements.

Programmable gate arrays(PGAs) and complex programmable logic devices(CPLDs) are more flexible and more versatile and can be used and can be used to implement a complete digital system on a chip. as they can‟t handle as complex a design and draw more power.

Bengaluru Page 71 . The first is the flexibility of the implementation which is made possible by virtue of the re-programmability of FPGAs which allows easy modification of wavelet type. which makes it ideal for implementing the discrete wavelet transform functions onto the LUT-based architecture of Virtex FPGAs. Moreover. Distributed arithmetic makes extensive use of look-up tables. Two slices are present in each CLB as shown in Figure 2. Field programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) provide a new implementation platform for the discrete wavelet transform.3 INTERNAL CONFIGURATION The basic Virtex logic element in a CLB is the slice .Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression Viretx FPGA. Interconnections between these elements are configured by multiplexers controlled by SRAM cells programmed by a user‟s bitstream. describes implementations for both the forward and inverse transforms. this implementation goes down to the actual implementation level. distributed arithmetic is suitable for low power portable applications because it allows replacement of costly multipliers with shifts and look-up tables.

Each slice contains 4-input.6. Indeed. We make maximal utilization of the lookup table (LUT) architecture of Virtex FPGAs by reformulating the wavelet transform computation in accordance with the distributed arithmetic algorithm.

This is accomplished using debug tools. the switch is activated for less than 2 seconds.II Pro Development System are identified in Table B. aprocessor reset pulse of 100 microseconds is applied to the PROCESSOR_RESET_Z signal. on. a high-speed SelectMap byte-wide configuration from the on-board Platform Flash configuration PROM (U3) is selected as the configuration source. the FPGA begins to configure. Configuring the FPGA: At power up. Sir MVIT. The two configuration methods supported. The JTAG debug resources are not hardwired to specific pins and are available for attachment in the FPGA fabric. If. If the switch is activated for more than 2 seconds.
a User configuration from the on-board Platform Flash configuration PROM is selected as the configuration data. The System ACE controller checks the associated Compact Flash socket and storage device for the existence of configuration data. a lower speed JTAG-based configuration from Compact Flash or external JTAG source is selected as the configuration source. on. or down. If the PROM VERSION switch is open. This configuration must be programmed into the Platform Flash PROM from the JTAG The Platform Cable USB interface or the USB interface. a PC4 cable connection through J27. This means that if this switch is changedafter board powerup. or another safe default configuration. If additional data is made available to the FPGA after the completion of configuration. off. the RESET_RELOAD pushbutton (SW1) must be pressed for more than 2 seconds for the new state of the switch to be recognized. and a USB to PC connection through J8 the embedded Platform Cable USB interface. This is identified to the user through the illumination of the JTAG CONFIG LED (D20). This is identified to the user through the illumination of the GOLDEN CONFIG LED (D14). The Platform Flash is normally disabled after the FPGA is finished configuring and has asserted the DONE signal. the GOLDEN configuration from the onboard Platform Flash configuration PROM is selected as the configuration data. or up. off. Sir MVIT. This configuration can be a board test utility provided by Xilinx. jumper JP9 must be moved from the NORMAL to the EXTENDED position to permanently enable the PROM and allow the FPGA to clock out the additional data using the FPGA_PROM_CLOCK signal. Bengaluru Page 87 . The file structure on the Compact Flash storage device Dept of E&C. If the PROM VERSION switch is closed. the least significant switch (right side) of SW9. the storage device becomes the source for the configuration data.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression The Platform Flash configuration PROM supports two different FPGA configurations (versions) selected by the position of the PROM VERSION switch. It is important to note that the PROM VERSION switch is only sampled on board powerup and after a complete system reset. the default source is from the Compact Flash port (J7). or down. If the CONFIG SOURCE switch is open. If configuration data exists on the storage device. If a JTAG-based configuration is selected. The JTAG-based configuration can originate from several sources: the Compact Flash card.
the FPGA Start-Up Clock should be set to CCLK in the Startup Options section of the Process Options for the generation of the programming file. If a JTAG-based configuration is selected and a valid configuration file is not found on the Compact Flash card by the System ACE controller (U2). selected by the triple CF CONFIG SELECT DIP switch (SW8). the SYSTEMACE STATUS LED (D12) flashes until the configuration process is completed. then a Parallel Cable 4 (PC4) interface can be used instead by connecting a PC4 cable to J27. If a USB-equipped host PC is not available as a configuration source. The default external source for FPGA configuration is the high-speed embedded Platform Cable USB configuration port (J8) and is enabled when the System ACE controller does not find configuration data on the storage device. During JTAG configuration. otherwise JTAG Clock should be selected. Bengaluru Page 88 . the RESET_RELOAD pushbutton (SW1) can be used to load any of the eight different configuration data files by pressing the switch for more than 2 seconds. the SYSTEMACE ERROR LED (D11) flashes. Flash configuration PROM is enabled. Sir MVIT. and the System ACE controller connects to an external JTAG port for FPGA configuration. and the FPGA asserts the FPGA_DONE signal and illuminates the DONE LED (D4). Figure B.Modified DA based DWT-IDWT on FPGA for Image Compression supports up to eight different configuration data files.8: Configuration data path Dept of E&C. At any time.
