These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJHPSA, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • A VLSI Architecture of CORDIC based Popular Windows and Its FPGA Prototype   Order a copy of this article
    by VIKAS KUMAR, Kailash Chandra Ray, Preetam Kumar 
    Abstract: Popular window technique such as Hamming, Hanning, Blackman, Blackman - Harris and Flat Top windows are an obvious choice before Fast Fourier Transform(FFT) in the domain of signal processing, communication system and image processing to minimize the undesirable phenomenon i.e. spectral leakage and picket fence effect arise due to direct truncation by rectangular window. As the window characteristics depends upon the type of the function and length of window used, hence this is necessary to choose a particular window function and window length depending upon the applications. In other hand, real time implementation of window function demands efficient and flexible VLSI architecture. Hence this paper presents a new hardware efficient CORDIC based VLSI architecture which is capable of reconfigurability to choose a window function among aforesaid popular window functions and window length ranging from 8 to 32K, depending upon the application. Further this proposed architecture is prototyped on FPGA for real time validation and implementation results have been highlighted along with error analysis.
