The Fast sort IP core is a AXI-compatible digital hardware block with internal data sorting algorithm. Hardware implementation of a sorting algorithm reduces complexity of a software data processing, data sorting time and increases performance in time-critical applications. The Fast sort IP core can be used for sorting custom data, sorting array of data structure and for nonlinear filters such as a median filter, minmax filter or a rank's filter.
The Fast sort IP core require low hardware resources and has a high maximum clock frequency. In real cases The Fast sort IP core can increase a sorting time up to 10-20 times.
