A texture mapping apparatus for the real-time display of a figure in which an animated image has been mapped. The apparatus includes a device which generates 2D (2 dimensional) source coordinates data which provide a source for texture mapping data corresponding to 3D (3 dimensional) destination coordinates data which in turn provide destinations for texture mapping data. A first dual port memory stores the 2D source coordinates data, and a second dual port memory stores animated image data. The 2D source coordinates data are read out from the first dual port memory to the second dual port memory as destination addresses. Color data read out from the second dual port memory are supplied to a display unit.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
