Summary:
Computer generated graphics has become an integral part of most computer systems. Communicating information in an interesting and understandable manner has become a necessity in the computer industry due to the increase in users who are interested in animation, simulation, graphical design, games and graphic representations of complex mathematical information. The Synchronous System Architecture described in this paper will illustrate a simple, low cost and efficient means of creating and displaying images on a cathode ray tube (CRT). A step-by-step design procedure is presented which utilizes the Synchronous System Architecture (SSA) in a standalone system/terminal environment. Finally, the software alogrithms used in the system will be outlined and discussed.
