Artificial Neural Network for Character Recognition on Embedded-Based FPGA
An embedded system application involves a diverse set of skills that extend across traditional disciplinary boundaries, including computer hardware, software, algorithms, interfacing and application domain. Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGAs) which offer flexibility in design like software, but with performance speeds closer to Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) are used as an embedded-based system in this project. The character recognition project using artificial neural network (ANN) approach is implemented on Altera Cyclone II 2C35 FPGA device and the results shown very promising.
