After making the necessary settings,
Again from the CPU 105, the image bus I / F controller 12
Instruct 2a to permit image data transfer. In accordance with this permission, the image bus I / F controller 122a
Transfer of image data from the AM 106 or each device on the image bus 115 is started.

In this case, the size is 32 bits, the size of the image to be rotated is 32 × 32 (bit), and the image data is transferred in units of 32 bits when the image data is transferred to the image bus 115. (The image to be handled is assumed to be binary). As mentioned above, 32
In order to obtain a × 32 (bit) image, the unit data transfer described above needs to be performed 32 times, and image data must be transferred from discontinuous addresses (see FIG. 7).
