interpolation for PTP axes is extremely simple, and involves only providing the DDA is essentially an algorithm for digital integration and generates a pulse. Figure 2: DDA interpolation structure with decimal control. value is 1 so that code can be easy to handle and hardware resource can be saved as well). PDF | A software interpolator which is comprised of linear and circular interpolations is compared with its hardware counterpart and with other circular.

Digital differential analyzer (graphics algorithm) – Wikipedia

Please help to improve this article by introducing more precise citations. The fixed-point integer operation requires two additions per output cycle, and in case of fractional part overflow, one additional increment and subtraction. A line is then sampled at unit intervals in one coordinate and corresponding integer values nearest the line path are determined for the other coordinate.


For the digital implementation of a differential analyzer, see Digital differential analyzer.

DDAs are used for rasterization of lines, triangles and polygons. Subscript k takes integer values starting from 0, for the 1st point and increases by 1 until endpoint is reached. The DDA method can be implemented using floating-point or integer arithmetic. Articles lacking in-text citations from June All articles lacking in-text citations Articles with example C code.

In computer graphicsa digital differential analyzer DDA is hardware or software used for interpolation of interoplation over an hatdware between start and end point.

This article is about a graphics algorithm. In fact any two consecutive point x,y lying on this line segment should satisfy the equation.

This article includes a list of referencesrelated reading or external linksbut its sources remain unclear because it lacks inline citations. A linear DDA starts by calculating the smaller of dy or dx for a unit increment of the other. June Learn how and when to remove this template message. Computer graphics algorithms Digital geometry.


This process is intterpolation efficient when an FPU with fast add and rounding operation will be available. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Views Read Edit View history.

The native floating-point implementation requires one addition and one rounding operation per interpolated value e. For lines with slope greater than 1, we reverse the role of x and y hardwafe.
