Multi-dimensional Discrete Fourier Transforms (DFTs) play an important role in signal and image processing applications. Image reconstruction is a key component in signal processing applications like medical imaging, computer vision, face recognition etc. Two dimensional fast Fourier Transform (2D FFT) and Inverse FFT plays vital role in reconstruction. In this paper we present a fast 64 × 64 point 2D FFT architecture based on radix-43 algorithm using a parallel unrolled radix-43 FFT as the basic block. Our radix-43 architecture is a memory optimized parallel architecture which computes 64-point FFT, with least execution time. Proposed architecture produces reordered output of both 64-point one dimensional (1D) FFT and 64 × 64 point 2D FFT, without using any additional hardware for reordering. The proposed architecture has been implemented in UMC 40nm CMOS technology with clock frequency of 500 MHz and area of 0.841 mm2. The power consumption of proposed architecture is 358 mW at 500 MHz. Energy efficiency (FFTs computed per unit of energy) is 341 points/Joule. Computation time of 64 × 64 point FFT is 8.19 μs. ASIC implementation results shows better performance of proposed work in terms of computation time when compared with state-of-art implementation. Proposed architecture has also been implemented in Virtex-7 FPGA which gives comparable area.
