Hello VLSI Design Engineers,
We are a group of students doing M.S in VLSI Design. For one of our mini projects, we tried implementing Edge Detection algorithms for Sobel & Prewitt methods and were partially successful. However, for certain reference related to comparison with Canny algorithm, we require support for experts who would be glad to extend a hand.
Is there any open core website with VHDL or Verilog codes of Sobel/Prewitt/Canny algorithms for implementation in FPGA. We would be glad if you could help us.
Expressing our gratitude in advance. Thank You.
@DAVIDSOLOMON • 04 Mar, 2009 hi sir

as u said that about the edge detection using sobel operator in vhdl/veriloghdl

can u send me the code .

as i m in need for an paper to publish for my ph.d

waiting for ur reply in apositive way with much anticipation

regards

@ms_cs • 06 Mar, 2009 Edge detection algorithms are used in image processing mostly..I think....May I know the goal and features of this project?
@harsukh • 12 Apr, 2009 Hi
can u please send me the vhdl code of sobel algorithm.i need it urgently.

@ajoy • 12 Jun, 2009 u can refer to cnblogs.com
@sauravgoswami • 12 Jun, 2009 Hi james,why you need readymade codes??? if you have made proper flowchart,coding takes care of itself.anyhow can you tell were you gonna use this code???

dude! you are publishing s PHD paper and waiting upon code?
@flukei • 28 Jun, 2009 I am using Quartus II and you cant have more than always@(posedge/negedge)
so i came up with a state machine edge detector
it executes your code when at state s1 for negedge and s2 for posedge

parameter
s0=2'b00,
s1=2'b01,
s2=2'b10,
s3=2'b11;

reg [1:0] edge_det;

case(edge_det)
s0:
begin
if (in1==1)
edge_det=s1;
end
s1://negedge
begin
if (in1==0)
begin
edge_det=s2;
state<=in_state;
end
end
s2://posedge
begin
if (in1==1)
edge_det=s1;

end
s3:
edge_det=s0;
endcase

//please tell me if this works
@flukei • 30 Jun, 2009 please note:
in1 is the net/signal you want to detect its transition
the line with state<=in_state can be replaced with your code that should be executed at negedge
if you want to execute your code at posedge add it after if(in1==1)
and dont forget the line edge_det=s1;
@debu • 30 Jun, 2009 @flukei: I may be wrong, but your code is simply checking for a high state or a low state in the in1 signal.

If one needs to check the edge of a signal, one must use (in verilog):

module checkEdge (input signalIn);

    always @ (posedge signalIn)    //positive edge detection
    begin
        //do something
    end

    always @ (negedge signalIn)    //negative edge detection
    begin
        //do something
    end
  
    always @ (signalIn)    //any state change for "signalIn"
    begin
        //do something
    end

    always @ (*)    //any state change for any signal
    begin
       //do something
    end

endmodule
You can have any combinational logic in the last two, and any sequential logic in the first two.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Debu 😀
@flukei • 30 Jun, 2009 It is a state machine that replaces always@(posedge..) and always@(negedge..) verilog command,
It checks if your values are going from high to low or low to high

I used it to replace the always@() function because i got an error from altera's quartus II when i use more than one always@() function and it works
@debu • 30 Jun, 2009 @flukei: Sorry my friend, It doesn't work. I'm using Xilinx ISE 10.1, with a Spartan 3A. In VHDL, to detect an edge one must use the block:
process (<signal>'event)
Followed by the conditon to check for. The state machine that you provided will only check if the signal levels have changed since the previous state, and will not find an edge (the "event" in the "process" block will).

The reason that you can use only one "always" block for the same condition in the same signal is the IEEE-1364 specifications.

According to them, all statements within any block must be simultaneous, i.e, you can write any combination of sequential and combinational elements inside the same block, as long as they dont have any precedence in the circuit. So if there are two (or more) seperate and indipendent set of instructions that you need to execute everytime there is a condition then, you may write:

always (<signal condition>)
begin
    <Statement set 1>

    <Statement set 2>

    <Statement set 3>
    ....
    ....
end 
//where statement sets 1,2,3... are non related 
I hope I was clear in expressing my thoughts. (I often am not 😀 )

Regards,

Debu 😀
@flukei • 02 Jul, 2009 It worked on Altera's Quartus II
and I was using verilog

I guess my code couldnt be used for VHDL coding

thank you for your feedback
@digitalpbk • 26 Jul, 2009 This is what precisely we did and got output checkout the documentation and verilog codes on the Sobel Edge detector using FPGA Project
@carla • 27 Oct, 2009 Hi
can you send me your VHDL code of filter prewitt, i need it to implement it on FPGA and measure the energy
thank you a lot
@elamparithi • 12 Nov, 2009 VHDL learning

i feel hard tolearn vHDL/verilog can anybody suggest....these languages....😕
@nehk121 • 19 Aug, 2010 Re: Edge Detection using VHDL

Hi
can u please send me the vhdl code of sobel edge detection.i need it urgently.
regards
@basavak16 • 04 Dec, 2010 sir,i am studying m.tech first sem and i was very much intersted in doing this as mini project so if you could send me code and its information it will be great helpful to me please dsend as early as possible
@vineet1992 • 15 Sep, 2011 sir, i want to simulate sobel edge detctor on Xilinux and modelsim using only VHDL.tell me how we can load image on xilinux and detect edges without using matlab or other software.

is it possible?
please suggest code and refrences.
thanks.
@vineet1992 • 22 Sep, 2011 sir, my .jpeg or any other format image is stored in computer.
i want to load it on xilinx using vhdl for sobel edge detection algo.
for edge detection algo in which format image must be loaded on xilinx?
is any conversion of format is required?
pls tell some ref./code for this.

SIR i want to detect the edges of image to implement sobel or canny edge detector and then to link it.
so pls tell me how we can load image on xilinx?
what is the requiered format for edge detection?
is conversion of image from on type (i.e. jpeg) to other (supported by xilinx) is necessary ? if yes then what is the reruired format and how we can do?
@ANUJA T J • 02 Mar, 2014 Hi,
please send the vhdl code for image edge detection based on FPGA using canny operator.
@Mayur254 • 05 Aug, 2014 i can provide vhdl code for image edge detection...

@Kaustubh Katdare • 06 Aug, 2014 @Mayur254 - why not share your code here? You could upload it to our projects section.
@naz123 • 16 Oct, 2014 sir .i want to implement edge detection using canny algorithm in verilog . i am very much interested to do this project . sir please send me this code. I would be very grateful to you if so ...
thanks
@naz123 • 01 Dec, 2014 hi
can anyone please tell how to assign the pixel values stored in text file to an inout port in verilog code?
Is it in test bench or the main module..???

hi

In Test bench mate

Main module you will have only input and output ports
Test bench has inout ports as well
@naz123 • 03 Dec, 2014 Thanks for your reply Jeffrey.
I tried.. but m not able to load text file values as an input to the inout port. I used $readmemh(" txt filename.txt", inout port name); in the text bench..which did not work!!!
Could you please suggest more plzzz..

@SAKSHI JAIN • 12 Feb, 2020

@debu I'm doing my project on xilinx and need a test bench for sobel detector which have an image as input 

It would be a great help if you provide me with the above or it would be great if you give me idea that how I can create a test bench for the same
