The thermal image system was widely used in the defence-related industry because of detect infrared light from the object without light. but, as the demand in the security system and automobile market increases, the civilian industry are expanding to the private sector. There are difficult to apply various requirement because of previous systems are based by FPGA, so it need new system that apply to various requirement. The proposed paper is thermal image processing system using common image processor. It has various requirement and scalable to support image input/output interface and device driver. If it is used to proposed system, it reduce development cost and period than previous system based FPGA. Because there has very high accessibility. In addition, it expect to have satisfaction of customer requirements, development cost, development period, release date of product.
