Abstract The project proposes a novel algebraic integer (AI) based multi encoding of Daubechies-4 and Daubechies-6 2D wavelet filters having error free integer based computation. Digital VLSI architectures employing and working parallel channels are being proposed. The multi encoded AI framework allows a multiplication free and computationally accurate architecture. It provides a noise free computation throughput and the multi-level, multi rate 2D filtering operation. A single final reconstruction step furnishes filtered and down sampled image outputs in fixed-point, resulting in low levels of image noise. It Compares between Daubechies-4 and Daubechies-6 designs in terms of SNR, PSNR, and hardware structure, and power consumptions, for different word lengths. Further, FRS designs based on canonical signed digit representation and on expansion factors are proposed with dynamic power consumption which will be verified on FPGA chip using an ML605 platform.

The field of discrete wavelet transforms (DWT) has been great interest in wavelets is not only partly due to their ability to efficiently represent functions with localized features, but also due to the wavelet analysis being capable of decomposing a signal into a particular set of basis functions. They have a good spectral properties to the fact that it was discovered that some wavelets might be implemented in an extremely computationally efficient manner. Just as fast Fourier transform (FFT) algorithms made the Fourier transform a practical tool for spectral analysis, the multi- resolution analysis has made the discrete wavelet transform (DWT) a viable tool for computational time-scale analysis. DWT based multi-resolution analysis leads to both time and frequency localization.
A Daubechies wavelets are well-suited and commonly used in image compression applications. Herein we refer to the Daubechies wavelets generated from 4- and 6-tap filter banks as Daub-4 and -6 wavelets, respectively. Whereas the Daub-4 wavelets are often employed in applications where the signals are smooth and slowly varying, the Daub-6 wavelets are used for signals bearing abrupt changes and having high undesired noise levels. Daub-4 wavelets can be highly localized to smooth and Daub-6 wavelets have found applications in medical imaging.
we propose a new multi-encoding technique in this project. That achieves exact computation of multi-level 2-D Daubechies wavelet transforms using algebraic integer encoding. Compared to existing AI designs in literature, the proposed design can compute wavelet image approximations entirely over integer fields and with a single FRS in a purely AI based 2-D architecture. The design avoids the need of intermediate reconstruction steps.
Moreover, the proposed architecture is sought to be multiplier free. Such design facilitate speed, relatively smaller area on chip as well as cost of design. The new design is multi-encoded and multi-rate, operating over AI with no intermediate reconstruction steps. In this implementation, a error-free computations can be performed until the final FRS. Our architecture emphasizes on quality of output image and speed and power consumption for accuracy.

This needs parallel FIR filter structure & also this paper explains brief about DWT implemented in VHDL. It uses FPGA technology for various threshold technique.
The Problem of Fixed-Point Errors
Filter banks associated to Daubechies wavelets have irrational coefficients whose representation in fixed-point requires truncation. Such approximations introduce representation errors which propagate through a given filter bank. The required filter bank is, the computational error may become. This effects a lower obtained signal-to-noise of the resulting data.
Prior Art on AI-Based DWT
A algebraic integers encoding can address the computational noise injection in DWT analysis.AI quantization has been employed in many signal processing schemes, including wavelet and DCT analysis. A significant advantage of the AI encoding is having capability of mapping the required irrational wavelet coefficients into a vectors of integers. Thus, the irrational coefficients of the Daubechies filters can be represented into arrays or integers.
AI encoding schemes require a reconstruction step to convert the resulting AI encoded quantities back into fixed- precision binary. The design of digital architectures for the one Dimension Daub-4 and -6 filters were in the recent past. Whereas in the 2-D architectures require intermediate reconstruction steps that map the AI encoded transform coefficients back into fixed-point format. These are one Dimension DWT architectures that compute the 2-D DWT by repeated use of a one Dimension AI-encoded architecture. This IRS is located after the first application of the transform before submitting the resulting data to the next stage. When multi-level decompositions are attempted. Errors incurred in the intermediate reconstructions mitigate the benefits of using AI encoding for 2-D multi-level DWTs. This is an outstanding problem in the current literature which we identify and correct in the present contribution.
- p>According to the base paper
Filter Filter banks associated to Daubechies wavelets have irrational coefficients whose representation in fixed-point requires truncation or rounding off. Such approximations introduce representation errors which propagate through a given filter bank. the longer the required filter bank is, the greater the computational error may become. This process effects a lower obtained signal-to-noise of the resulting data. Minimum operating frequency, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and peak-signal-to noise ratio (PSNR) figures are sought using the proposed designs operating in fixed-point. The
overall system power consummation is more and performance is less. In my project I will try to find out the solutions for the above mentioned problems.
REVIEW OF SUB-BAND CODING
The wavelet decomposition of input image data can be accomplished by sub-band coding. A 2-D FIR filter bank processes the input image data resulting in an approximation and detail sub-images.

After each iteration a coarser approximation can be achieved. Let the original image to be analyzed be denoted by An-1. Computes the approximation data. Detail information data Dvn,Dhn and Ddn are normally discarded or thresholded in data compression applications.

FINAL RECONSTRUCTION STEP
The proposed AI-based daubechies wavelet analyses based Daub-4 and -6 filter banks are entirely over extended integer fields. The AI encoded approximations must be converted back to again a standard fixed- point representation.
We proposed two approaches for the Final Reconstruction Step design. They are (i) Canonical signed digit(CSD) representation and (ii) Expansion Factor Method.

Resource Consumption and Figures of Merit
The AT product is a standard performance metric in digital hardware designs. It refers to chip-area and maximum frequency (speed) of the design. Lower Area time product values indicate a higher speed of operation. In an PGA, the area (A) is provided by the number of slice LUTFs used for logic given by the FPGA de- sign tool called XFLOW and the time is simply the critical path delay. Quantity AT2 is useful, when clock speed is the driving factor of design optimization, for high-throughput realizations. Table III shows the estimated power. consumption for the Daub-4 and -6 filter banks. The SNR and peak PSNR were adopted as figures of merit.

the Daub-4 and -6 filter banks. Table VI shows a performance comparison among proposed Daub-4 and -6 architectures for single level decomposition of 8-bit Lena image.
<>For comparison, we devised a version of the proposed system that operates over fixed-point arithmetic instead of AI- based arithmetic. For such, we employed 8 bits for word size with 6 fractional bits. In this case, the required filter banks were implemented by quantizing the exact filter coefficients into the fixed-point representation. Notice that the fixed-point scheme incurs coupled quantization noise, whereas the AI- based architecture is immune to this source of contamination.
Comparison With Existing Methods
A significant amount of work is published on 1-D and 2-D DWT VLSI architectures. The proposed designs address the Daub-4 and -6 wavelet analysis. Also detailed data is re- ported in ,  allowing us to derive meaningful comparison
Considering 8-bit input word length, the obtained SNR and PSNR values for proposed architectures higher than the 1- D and 2-D DWT architectures.
Among the FRS approaches we have mentioned, Moreover, we compared the proposed architectures with several prominent VLSI 2-D DWT designs archived in literature. In particular, we separated the following works:
To compare with other architectures, PSNR values presented for proposed Daub-4 and -6 architectures, were obtained by employing reconstructions between column and row transforms, whereas the PSNR values in Table V are entirely 2-D based with single final reconstruction step.

Resized Image(64×64) PSNR
Resized Image(64×64) SNR
We proposed a multi-encoded AI-based 2-D wavelet filter Bank architecture capable of arbitrarily numerical accuracy. By employing AI encoding, resulting wavelet decomposed images had SNR and PSNR are improved. A single FRS is the only source of computational error. Noise Injection from intermediate fixed-point errors is non-existent.
We proposed several designs for the FRS based on CSD representation and expansion factor scaling. The SNR and PSNR values for the AI-based Daub-6 architecture were approximately 610% higher than the Daub-4 architecture. Due to its inherent simplicity of coefficients and smaller number of AI numbers, the Daub-4 AI- based architecture had consumed approximately half of the Daub-6 systems.Daub-4 and Daub-6 single level decomposition architectures were also FPGA prototyped with the Xilinx Virtex-6 device at 442.47 and 274.72MHz, respectively. In the presence of higher resolution and increased frame rate, there is no option but to increase the throughput of the digital filtering architectures. Finally AI based scheme can be applied to any type of DWT as long as the scaling and wavelet coefficients of the corresponding filters could be given and exact representation.
