Paper Abstract

The design of an algorithmically specialized processing module capable of implementing arbitrary geometric transforms on discrete image data is described. Applications include geometric image correction, image mapping, and real-time computer graphics and display systems. Following a discussion of the inherent design complexities involved, several potential solutions and their relative merits and shortcomings are discussed. Of particular importance is the use of a binary or bit plane approach where k-bit pixel data is geometrically transformed one bit plane at a time. This is achieved via a massively parallel pixel destination address calculation and use of either an associative memory (AM) or a bit-plane AND-ing operation. The output bit-plane is formed using row and/or column decoders with OR-ed outputs. Future research directions are outlined.
