 Method of and apparatus for processing graphics patent thumbnailMethod of and apparatus for processing graphics
A tile-based graphics processing pipeline that uses primitive lists that can encompass plural rendering tiles includes a primitive list reading unit that reads primitive lists for a tile being rendered to determine primitives to be processed for the tile and a rasteriser that rasterises input primitives to generate graphics fragments to be processed. The pipeline further comprises a comparison unit between the primitive list reading unit and the rasteriser that for primitives that have been read from primitive lists that include plural rendering tiles, compares the location of the primitive in the render target to the location of the tile being rendered, and then either sends the primitive onwards to the rasteriser if the comparison determines that the primitive could lie at least partially within the tile, or does not send the primitive to the rasteriser if the comparison determines that the primitive definitely does not lie within the tile..

In an embodiment, the method for converting outputs a rasterized representation of the desired dose pattern of radiation corresponding to the desired device pattern, wherein the vector-based representation includes primitive data identifying one or more primitive patterns; and instance data identifying how at least a portion of the desired device pattern is formed from one or more instances of each identified primitive pattern, the method including forming a rasterized primitive of each primitive pattern identified in the primitive data, and forming the rasterized representation by storing each rasterized primitive in association with the instance data corresponding to that rasterized primitive..

Monitoring video waveforms
A video signal waveform monitor is shown, which receives an input video signal composed of video lines. A video signal digitizer samples the input video signal at video sample points to generate a sequence of video pixel data, which is written into an acquisition framestore is organized into a video pixel array so as to represent a raster of the input video signal.
