A reprogrammable processor for fractal image compression
Fractal image compression appears to be a good candidate for implementation with a reprogrammable processor. It is computationally intensive, slow on existing technology, and employs a few basic, welldefined functions that are clear candidates for hardware implementation. We discuss our implementation of a reconfigurable processor for fractal image compression, used to evaluate the utility of different compression methods faster than a software-only approach.
