The need to provide a copy right protection on digital watermarking to multimedia data like speech, image or video is rapidly increasing with an intensification in the application in these areas. Digital watermarking has received a lot of attention in the past few years. A hardware system based solely on DSP processors are fast but may require more area, cost or power if the target application requires a large amount of parallel processing. An FPGA co-processor can provide as many as 550 parallel multiply and accumulate operations on a single device, but FPGAs excel at processing large amounts of data in parallel, as they are not optimized as processors for tasks such as periodic coefficient updates, decision- making control tasks. Combination of both the FPGA and DSP processor delivers an attractive solution for a wide range of applications. A hardware implementation of digital speech watermarking combined with speech compression, encryption on heterogeneous platform is made in this paper. It is observed that the proposed architecture is able to attain high speed while utilizing optimal resources in terms of area.
