This document presents an integrated systems design for a VLSI multiprocessor capable of generating contour surface displays in real-time (one-thirtieth of a second). It begins by examining an application that requires real-time contour surface display generation. The authors sketch some outlines for an architecture based upon a decomposable algorithm recently published. They then propose an architecture for a single board VLSI contour surface display generator that is pluggable into the Multibus of the Silicon Graphics, Inc. IRIS workstation
