This paper outlines efficient hardware architecture of detection of bacteria and alga in microscopic images, using Xilinx System Generator (XSG). XSG is a high-level design tool based on blocks. It gives bit and cycle accurate simulation. The approach of detection used is the Hough transform. The latter is a very efficient approach of location of parametric curves in an image, especially lines. System was implemented on Virtex-V FPGA. To demonstrate the quality of the system, some experiments on microscopic images are given.
