A column array processor (CAP) architecture for real-time (video rate) morphological image processing is proposed. The basic idea for this structure is that of a serial-to-parallel data input format and circular data stream processing. As compared to other structures, the column array processor appears to be more economical and flexible compared to a cellular array processor and more functional than a pipelined systolic array. The authors describe the concept and the structure of the processor and compare its operations to that of other processors. The primary motivation behind such an array processor is to implement morphological image analysis and processing algorithms in real-time for applications to video signals. Use of the processor is not limited to morphological operations
