With the rapid development of multimedia and Internet in today's society, embedded Linux system also involves many places, and the application of digital microscope is also reused in many industrial manufacturing areas. The main purpose of this paper is to complete the research and implementation of digital microscope image acquisition system based on Embedded Linux, including image acquisition card, logic function, hardware circuit design and image acquisition system. In this paper, the CMOS digital camera is used to connect the CMOS digital camera with the computer through the transmission network, so as to collect the data. In the image preprocessing, the adaptive method based on mean and variance is implemented to correct the gray level of the collected image to avoid high error. In the image registration, the registration algorithm is used to smooth the mosaic place. Then, Sobel algorithm is used to carry out the color transition step by step to eliminate the gap in the image and realize the microscopic image mosaic. The results are as follows: the overall design scheme of the system is designed; the circuit board of digital microscope image acquisition and processing unit based on Embedded Linux is realized; image mosaic is realized by using image preprocessing, registration algorithm and fusion technology, In order to improve the quality of digital microscope image acquisition; through the feasibility test of the system, it is concluded that the performance of the embedded Linux digital microscope image acquisition system proposed in this paper is good, which is worthy of wide application.
