Abstract [en]

A modular and area-efficient 3D graphics accelerator for tile based rendering in FPGA systems has been designed and implemented. The accelerator supports a subset of OpenGL, with features such as mipmapping, multitexturing and blending. The accelerator consists of a software component for projection and clipping of triangles, as well as a hardware component for rasterization, coloring and video output. Trade-offs made between area, performance and functionality have been described and justified. In order to evaluate the functionality and performance of the accelerator, it has been tested with two different applications.

Abstract [sv]

En modulär och utrymmeseffektiv 3D-grafikaccelerator för tile-baserad rendering i FPGA-system har designats och implementerats. Acceleratorn stöder en delmängd av OpenGL med funktioner som mipmapping, multitexturering och blending. Acceleratorn är uppdelad i en mjukvarudel för projektion och klippning av trianglar och en hårdvarudel för rastrering, färgsättning och utritning till skärm. Avvägningar som gjorts mellan area, prestanda och funktionalitet har beskrivits och motiverats. För att evaulera funktionalitet och prestanda har acceleratorn testats med två olika applikationer.
