Abstract

A refresh buffer driving a 1K by 1K pel (picture element) display with 1 byte/pel requires 1M bytes of RAM (random access memory). This article shows a method of using less storage for applications which require some windows with fewer than 8 bits/pel. A multilevel display system refers to windows with multiple levels of color or gray scale.
