Massively parallel processor array architectures can be used as hardware accelerators for a plenty of dataflow dominant applications. Bilateral filtering is an example of a state-of-the-art algorithm in medical imaging, which falls in the class of 2D adaptive filter algorithms. In this paper, we propose a semi-automatic mapping methodology for the generation of hardware accelerators for such a generic class of adaptive filtering applications in image processing. The final architecture deliver similar synthesis results as a hand-tuned design.
