Description du programme de recherche

Because of the recent advances in the semiconductor technology, efficient hardware designs of increasingly large number of signal processing functions necessary for real-time implementation of multimedia tasks are now possible. However, the quest continues to be for new approaches leading to custom and semi-custom designs with higher performance in terms of accuracy, speed, power, area and functionality. The objective of this research program is to investigate new techniques for high performance ASIC and FPGA designs and implementations of signal processing algorithms necessary for multimedia communication systems. Specifically, this research aims at the design and implementation of (a) algorithms and architectures for on-line computation of discrete wavelet, Fourier, sine, cosine and Hartley transforms, (b) DA-RNS FIR filters and pipelined LMS adaptive filters, and (c) a low-power systolic array-based adaptive Viterbi decoder
