ABSTRACT: Conventional CMOS technology's performance deteriorates due to increased short channel effects. Double-gate (DG) FinFETs has better short channel effects performance compared to the conventional CMOS and stimulates technology scaling. The main drawback of using CMOS transistors are high power consumption and high leakage current. Fin-type field-effect transistors (FinFETs) are promising substitutes for bulk CMOS in nano- scale circuits.FinFET, which is a double-gate field effect transistor (DGFET), is more versatile than traditional single-gate field effect transistors because it has two gates that can be controlled independently. Usually, the second gate of FinFET transistors is used to dynamically control the threshold voltage of the first gate in order to improve the performance and reduce leakage power. In this paper, we proposes a synchronous johnson counter by using FinFET Technology.FinFET logic implementation has significant advantages over static CMOS logic in terms of power consumption. The proposed counter was fabricated in 16nm FinFET technology in HSPICE.

ABSTRACT: Video Compression (VC) is one of the resource hungry key element in video communication and is commonly achieved using Motion Estimation (ME). In this paper we proposed power efficient one bit full adder and one of the simple and easy metric called Sum of Absolute Difference (SAD) for estimating the motion vectors in motion estimation. SAD is primarily used to detect motion in the video sub system. Here we proposed power efficient 4X4 and 8X8 SAD architectures. The proposed 4X4 SAD proves that 29%, 63.23% and 61.31% improvement in leakage power, dynamic power and total power respectively as compared with existing 4X4 SAD. Similarly the proposed 8X8 SAD which proves that 57%, 46.16% and 46.78% improvement in Leakage Power (LP), Dynamic Power (DP) and Total Power (TP) respectively as compared with that of existing 8X8 SAD at the gate level. The designs are implemented in ASIC methodology using cadence tools.

Title : An Efficient Two's Complement Multiplier With FPGA Implementation
Country : India
Authors : Kolathur Lakshmipathy, Voruganti Santhosh Kumar , Dr Vangala padmaja

ABSTRACT: The performance of multiplication is crucial for multimedia applications such as 3D graphics and signal processing systems which depend on extensive numbers of multiplications. Previously reported multiplication algorithms mainly focus on rapidly reducing the partial products rows down to final sums and carries used for the final accumulation. These techniques mostly rely on circuit optimization and minimization of the critical paths. In this paper, an algorithm to achieve fast multiplication in two's complement representation is presented. Indeed, our approach focuses on reducing the number of partial product rows. In turn, this directly influences the speed of the multiplication, even before applying partial products reduction techniques. Fewer partial products rows are produced, thereby lowering the overall operation time. This results in a true diamond-shape for the partial product tree which is more efficient in terms of implementation.

ABSTRACT: Designing of digital filters based on LABVIEW involves the concept of virtual instrumentation. In the recent years LABVIEW finds many applications in different fields for example industrial purpose like level sensor, temperature sensor pressure sensor etc. Virtual instruments are used in LABVIEW. Each VI has three parts a block diagram, a front panel and a connector panel. Connector panel is used to represent the VI in the block diagrams of other. Controls and indicators on the front panel allow an operator to input data into or extract data from a running virtual instrument. The front panel can also serve as a programmatic interface. A digital IIR filter system is developed using LABVIEW software. IIR filters possess certain properties which makes them preferred design choices in many situations over FIR filters. Following are the types of IIR filter Butterworth filters, Chebyshev filters, Inverse chebyshev filters, Elliptic filters. Virtual instrument reads the desired parameters of the filters entered by the user on the front panel and determines its magnitude response and filter coefficients.

Keywords: ADC, DAC, DSP, Design Approach, Virtual instrument, LABVIEW, IIR filter.

Title : Removal of High Density Impulse Noise Using Cloud Model Filter
Country : India

ABSTRACT: The fact that makes image denoising a difficult task is uncertainties in the impulse noise. The most knowledge in dayflies is uncertainty and erratic, unfortunately it is similar to impulse noise. The mathematic implements for handling uncertainty mostly are probability theory and fuzzy mathematics. That means, among the uncertainties involved in impulse noise, the randomness and the fuzziness are the two most important features. In this paper we use a detail-preserving filter based on the Cloud Model (CM) to remove severe impulse noise. CM is an uncertain conversion model, between qualitative and quantitative description that integrates the concept of randomness and fuzziness. The normal random number generation method in normal cloud generator algorithm overcomes the insufficiency of common method to generate random numbers. It can produce random numbers which can be predictable and replicated, and this random numbers present to be a random sequence as a whole. The digital features of the normal cloud characterized by three values with the expectation Ex, entropy En and Hyper entropy He and are good enough to represent a normal cloud. First, an uncertainty-based detector, normal cloud generator, identifies the pixels corrupted by impulse noise. Then, the identified noise pixels are replaced by a fuzzy mean estimation of the processed noise free pixels within the detection window. Compared with the traditional switching filters, the CM filter makes a great improvement in image denoising. Especially, at high density noise level. Thus, the cloud model filter can remove severe impulse noise while preserving the image details.

Key words—uncertainty, fuzzy median, normal cloud generator, cloud drops.

Title : Survey on Different Image Fusion Techniques

ABSTRACT: In medical imaging and remote sensing, image fusion technique is a useful tool used to fuse high spatial resolution panchromatic images (PAN) with lower spatial resolution multispectral images (MS) to create a high spatial resolution multispectral of image fusion while preserving the spectral information in the multispectral image (MS).Image fusion is the process that combines information from multiple images of the samescene. The result of image fusion is a new image that retains the most desirable informationand characteristics of each input image. Now-a-days, almost all areas of medical diagnosis are impacted by the digital image processing. When an image is processed for visual interpretation, the human eye is the judge of how well a particular method works. Clinical application demanding Radiotherapy plan, for instance, often benefits from the complementary information in images of different modalities. For medical diagnosis, Magnetic Resonance Image (MRI) is a medical imaging technique used in radiology to visualize internal structures of the body in detail. MRI provides better information on soft tissue with more distortion. Whereas, Computed Tomography (CT) provides the best information on denser tissue with less distortion. Wavelet transform fusion is more formally defined by considering the wavelet transforms of the two registered input images together with the fusion rule .Then, the inverse wavelet transform is computed, and the fused image is reconstructed. The wavelets used in image fusion can be classified into three categories Orthogonal, Bi-orthogonal and A'trous' wavelet. Although these wavelets share some common properties, each wavelet has a unique image decompression and reconstruction characteristics that lead to different fusion results. Since medical images have several objects and curved shapes, it is expected that the curvelet transform would be better in their fusion. In this paper the fusion results are compared visually and statistically. The simulation results show the superiority of the curvelet transform to the wavelet transform in the fusion of digital image and MR and CT images from entropy, difference entropy, quality measure, standard deviation, PSNR.

ABSTRACT: Steganography, the art of hiding secrete messages inside other messages, innocuous wrapper, as until recently had been the poor cousin of cryptography, to communicate privately in an open channel. This area of study got widespread popularity after its alleged use by many extremist groups while hatching and executing their plans remotely. Because of this, in the recent past, many law enforcement and government agencies have also shown keen interest in it. There are many other reasons like Digital Rights Management applications (Watermarking and Finger Printing), which acted as catalyst too. This paper proposes a new steganographic encoding scheme which separates the colour channels of the windows bitmap images and then hides messages Randomly using polynomials in the LSB of one colour component of a chosen pixel where the colour components of the other two are found to be equal to the key selected. Keywords : Steganography, Data Hiding, LSB, Polynomials.

ABSTRACT: This paper presents application of segmentation techniques on atherosclerosis images using various segmentation methods like Otsu thresholding, fuzzy C means, clustering algorithm and marker controlled watershed segmentation algorithm. Atherosclerosis is one of the causes of coronary heart disease (CHD). The proposed marker controlled watershed algorithm for medical image segmentation and analysis is very important because of its advantages, such as always being able to construct an entire division of the color image and prevent over segmentation as compared to conventional watershed algorithm. Paper finds Region of Interest (ROI) values of segmented image with proposed technique for coronary atherosclerosis.

ABSTRACT: When the real-time signal processing is required pipelined FFT is the suitable option because of its high throughput and low power demands. A number of FFT architectures are there. Radix-4 single delay commutator (R4SDC) architecture is researched in this paper. R4SDC is the most popular pipeline FFT architectures, because of its efficient use of butterflies and multipliers. In this a low power technique for the pipeline FFT architecture is discussed. In this, Conventional R4SDC architecture, complex multiplier, and multiplier-less architecture based on common sub-expression technique are implemented and compared for 16, 64 and 256-point FFT architectures. A new type of multiplier algorithm called Multiplier-less architecture is implemented and compared with the carry save array, Wallace and Conventional complex multiplier (NBW).

ABSTRACT: This paper is related to the development of an innovative multimodal biometric identification system. Unimodal biometric systems often face significant limitations due to sensitivity to noise intraclass variability and other factors. Multimodal biometric identification systems aim to fuse two or more physical or behavioral traits to provide optimal False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and False Rejection Rate (FRR), thus improving system accuracy and dependability. In greater detail, a Multimodal Biometric Identification System Based On Iris & Fingerprint. Both biometric traits (Iris & Fingerprint) are processed individually through all steps like segmentation ,feature extraction & matching. The multimodal system is fused using match level fusion at the verification stage on obtained matching score of iris and fingerprint. The performance of the biometric system shows improvement in the False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and False Reject Rate (FRR) .The proposed multimodal system achieves interesting results with several commonly used databases.
