DESIGN OF A HIGH-SPEED, RECONFIGURABLE, DIGITAL RANK ORDER FILTER
AbstractA new architecture to realize a modular, high-speed, reconfigurable, digital Rank Order Filter (ROF) is presented in this paper. A bit-level algorithm by Kar and Pradhan has been modified in this work to implement the proposed ROF. Using the proposed digital rank selection circuit it is possible to find the element of a certain rank in a given sequence of N elements in each window in M steps, where M is the number of bits used in binary representation for the elements of the sequence. The size of the proposed ROF increases only linearly with the number of samples in each window to be ranked. The proposed ROF is also modular in nature, which means function of each part of the ROF is well defined and so the circuit can be easily expandable for larger window size. The proposed ROF has been implemented in FPGA and post-fit simulation results are presented in this paper. HSPICE simulation of the proposed ROF is also done for 0.18um CMOS process. The simulation result shows that the circuit could be operated at a clock speed of 500 MHz.
