VLSI technology provides and demands new ways of solving large scale computational problems. In light of this fact, a piplelined version of a real-time hidden surface elimination algorithm is proposed. The approach is tuned to the requirements of the VLSI technology: it is simple and regular, employs only local communciation, and attains a high degree of parallelism. The feasibility of the technique is demonstated for a computer graphics system where objects are defined in terms of planar triangular surface elements. A case is made in terms of the early 1980's technology.
