Defective Pixel Correction of an IR-camera-module

This paper deals with the substitution of defective sensor pixels regarding an Infrared Energy (IR) camera module. The work includes information about the development of algorithms and the optimization regarding hardware usage of a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). Furthermore, the work outlines the test of the algorithms with the aid of Matrix Laboratory (Matlab) and the implementation in Very high speed integrated circuit Hardware Description Language (VHDL). Simulations of the VHDL module conclude the work.
