Problem statement: Due to high cost and non reconfiguration of Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) in image processing applications, for example MPEG video compression used in CT scan frames requires real time conditions and the algorithms should be verified and optimized before implementation. Approach: Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) provides reconfiguration and implementation at the same time. Results: The implementation results of truncated multipliers on Sparatn-3An FPGA showed significant improvement as compared to Virtex and Virtex-E FPGA devices. Conclusion: Truncated multipliers can be used in medical imaging technology such as CT scan.
