The Multi-Sector Algorithm (MSA) is a simplification of the CORDIC algorithm to more closely meet the requirements for a real-time general Hough transform applications. The MSA can form a pipeline, and multiple angle rotations are performed in parallel. The whole has been tested on Virtex platform FPGAs to find straight edges within images. Angular resolution is incrementally scalable. Videorate processing is easily achieved. The ability to run independent MS units in parallel is only limited by on-chip memory restrictions.
