Title:

    A VLSI architecture for updating raster-scan displays

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    Interactive use of a display requires the capability to update the display rapidly. This paper describes an on-going project at Carnegie-Mellon University in which we are designing a frame buffer raster-scan display system which has the high performance typically required for interactive display applications. The system is intended to be a display for personal computers, computer generated graphic images, and image processing applications. Built using smart VLSI memory chips, the system will use parallel processing techniques to provide high performance.
