Design and Architectures for Signal and Image Processing

This special issue contains a selection of papers on specialized architectures and their design methods to implement signal processing applications on integrated circuits and FPGAs. The topics addressed in this issue are inspired by the DASIP 2013 Conference to be held on October 2013 in Cagliari. Hence, it mainly covers the issue on how to tackle a given signal processing application, and apply methods to produce an architecture that efficiently solves the problem by using custom integrated circuits or FPGAs. Novel updated or extended versions of the best ranked papers, as well as other papers submitted by the open call will be considered for publication.
