Background information that was used as the basis for the design specification of a generalized display processor is presented. Included are a review of state of the art airborne computer systems, a study of modern aircraft information display philosophy, and finally the development of a generalized instrumentation system architecture. A digital systems model for flat-panel matrix displays with inherent memory is introduced and one such display technology, the plasma displaymemory panel is described. The design of a generalized display processor which will interface with the airborne CPU and a semi-parallel plasma panel configuration is also described.
