Paper Abstract

We have developed a parallel Raster Image Processor that generates the laser beam control information on-the-fly, obviating the need for image storage, and in real-time. The system exhibits a nearly linear speedup in the number of processors used: It is therefore possible to achieve the very high pixel rates requested by the laser recorder. The system is composed of a variable number of processors and can hence be scaled, depending on the speed of the laser recorder. The software architecture of the system allows transparent execution of a large class of sequential algorithms on the parallel hardware.
