The concept of Image Processing is totally related to real time work, which is done by FPGA. Mathematical morphology is a well known image and signal processing technique. However, most morphological tools such MATLAB are not suited for strong real-time constraints. Application of FPGA Coprocessors as a means of delivering hardware IP to software and system engineers is presented. The hardware and software architecture of FPGA coprocessors is described in detail. This paper gives the algorithm and implementation of morphological image processing using median filter on FPGA. The design is implemented on a Xilinx xc3s500e-4fg320 FPGA chip.
