Digital image processing has been receiving an increasing amount of development in recent years, largely because high speed digital com puters are becoming readily available. In addition, the advent of the microprocessor has revolutionized the capabilities of compact electronic systems. This thesis examines the applicability of microprocessors to digital image processing. Using a Z8000 microprocessor as a baseline, the computation time for a two-dimensional fast Fourier transform is estimated for various microprocessor architectures. These results are later compared to the manufacturer's specified computation times on a Floating Point. Systems AP-120B Array Processor.
