Abstract

A display system architecture which has rectangular area filling as its primitive operation is presented. It is shown that lines can be drawn significantly faster with this architecture than with a pixel display system. The rendition of filled boxes is also faster showing an O(n^2) speed improvement. Furthermore filled polygons can be rendered with an O(n) speed improvement. The design and implementation of this rectangular area filling architecture are discussed and refined. A custom VLSI integrated circuit is currently being designed to implement this rectangular area filling architecture and at the same time reduce the display memory system video refresh bandwidth requirements.
