FPGA-based IP-cores for image processing in space explorations

Description :
The talk will introduce a library of modular FPGA-based IP-cores for image processing, developed by Politecnico di Torino and ThalesAlenia Space. They are going to be used as hardware accelerators in next planetary missions, mainly as image processing during the Entry, Descent, & Landing phases. Experimental data gathered during both the design and the V&V steps will be provided.
