In this research project, we propose the use of genetic algorithms for efficient solutions of automatic image filter construction. Thus, we intend to implement a genetic module in hardware (FPGA) in order to increase the performance of the evolution of these algorithms to solve the automatic filter construction problem. Such an approach may be useful to complement the contents of several fields of the course of Computer Engineering, besides being an additional learning of tools used by designers of hardware systems. Initially, the proposed architecture is modeled using MATLAB software, which allows you to work using genetic algorithms to create an evolutionary system, in order to validate the stages of the proposed architecture design process. After the system is ready, then it will be implemented in hardware in the FPGA (field-programmable gate array) using a hardware description language, for example, Verilog-HDL. Finally, all the implemented system will undergo tests to ensure it works and it is able to find effective solutions for the proposed problem. Thus, comparisons will be performed with algorithms in software as with other similar implementations in hardware for validation of the proposal.
