A hardware color transformation accelerator, in CMOS ASIC form, and its usage are described. The CHAMELEON ASIC performs multi-dimensional tetrahaedral interpolations at a speed of 10 Million (32bit) pixels per second. The achieved accuracy of the color transformation is a major topic, which strongly depends upon the kind of interpolation used. A report is made on the application of this ASIC in different fields of the graphics industry and the achieved results are compared to the desired market needs.
