A low-level graphics processor is assembled from a collection of hardwired functions of screen coordinates embedded directly in the display. Configuration of these functions is controlled by a buffer containing parameters delivered to the processor on-the-fly during
display scan. The processor is modular and scalable in keeping with the demands of large, high resolution displays.
