Median filters are of interest to image processing due to their ability to remove impulsive noise. Conventional digital implementations of the median function, however, require multiple clock cycles, a number that is proportional to the size of the 2-D data block. We present in the Letter a complete CMOS implementation, which consumes very little power and computes the median in just one clock cycle, independently from the size of the data block.
