Abstract

A low cost, transputer based visual display processor G.J. Porter, B. Singh, S.K. Barton Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering, University of Bradford, Richmond Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK ABSTRACT As major computer systems and in particular parallel computing resources become more accessible to the engineer, it is becoming necessary to increase the performance of the attached video display devices at least pro-rata with those of the computational elements. To this end a number of device manufacturers have developed or are in the process of developing new display controllers, dedicated to the task of improving the display environments of the super computers in use today by engineers. There is however a price to be paid for this development, in terms of monetary cost and in the design effort involved in integrating the new technology into existing systems. This paper will present a solution to this problems. Firstly, by showing how
