ABSTRACT:With the rapid development of modern information technology, the research and applications of image processing, especially the real-time image processing technology has attracted widespread attention of scholars. At the same time, along with the fast development of network, mobile communication and multimedia technology, embedded system has been more widely used. The development of embedded and DSP technology has promoted the new theories’ generation and application of image processing technology. Therefore, how to apply ARM and DSP processor structure to the new method of real-time image processing system has very important theory and application value. This paper, according to the actual demand, introduces the embedded image processing system function and general design method based on ARM and DSP, mainly for hardware design of the system’s DSP and ARM. From the performance parameters of the test, it can be concluded that the designed system in this paper achieves cooperative work on the ARM and DSP hardware platform, realizing the data real-time transmission, and it has an important guiding significance for the improvement of image processing system.
