To celebrate the start of the GitHub account of our lab, we decided to release the VHDL source code for the FAST feature detector, as this particular module was something we were often asked for in the emails. Please be aware, that this is not production-quality code.
You are free to use the code for research/hobby purposes. If you plan to use the whole module or its fragments as a part of a commercial application, please contact the Authors, so that further agreements can be made. If the posted code is useful to you, the Authors would be really grateful if you cite the folowing articles:
