Frequency analysis using DFT (discrete Fourier transform) or its faster computational technique (FFT) is an obvious choice for the entire image and signal processing domain where spectral leakage or picket fence effect is a major problem. Earlier works describe the software and ROM-based implementation of windowing functions to overcome the above-mentioned problems during spectral analysis. In this work we have proposed a CORDIC (co-ordinate rotation digital computer)-based unified windowing architecture to remove the spectral leakage, picket fence effect and resolution problems with different tradeoff between mainlobe and sidelobe in the frequency domain. A parallel-pipelined architecture has been adopted for the present design to ensure high throughput for real-time applications with the latency equal to twice of CORDIC length plus three extra cycles. This unified architecture includes a combination of linear CORDIC and circular CORDIC with FIFO and a few multiplexers where the selection of window and its length are user defined. We have synthesised this architecture with 0.18 mum CMOS technology using Synopsys Design Analyser. The total estimated dynamic power was found to be 350 mW with an operating frequency of 125 MHz and total cell area 11 mm2 (approximately)
