    Abstract

    Currently Oce uses FPGA technology for implementing colour image processing for their high volume colour printers. Although FPGA technology provides enough performance it, however, has a rather tedious development process. This paper describes the research conducted on an alternative implementation technology: software defined massively parallel processing. It is shown that this technology not only leads to a reduction in development time but also adds flexibility to the design.
