Abstract
This paper presents an algorithm for image rendering using FPGA (Field-Programmable Gate Arrays). The image is rendered by an FPGA chip coupled with a DSP (Digital Signal Processor) on an experimental board. The graphical data is 3D point-clouds - sets of particles that are from the geometrical point of view oriented ellipses in 3D space. Such scene representation seems to be more suitable for potentially many purposes than the most commonly used triangle meshes. The actual experimental implementation which verifies the concept and shows promising results is described.
