Shunting inhibition is a model of early visual processing which can provide contrast and edge enhancement, and dynamic range compression. An architecture of digital Shunting Inhibitory Cellular Neural Network (SICNN) for real time image processing is presented. The proposed architecture is intended to be used in a complete vision system for edge detection and image enhancement. The present hardware architecture, is modeled and simulated in VHDL. Simulation results show the functional validity of the proposed architecture.
