While this is neither and app-note nor a book, I’ve been interested in anti-aliasing for quite some times since A.) UI design is just kind of a fetish of mine, and B.) There’s almost no useful information out there on this stuff in a form that’s appropriate to low-cost embedded systems. Which is where this weeks EEBookshelf entry comes in: a very old article (think Quick Basic, ya … that thing you used back in High School or earlier) explaining the basics of anti-aliasing pixels. While the text is obscenely small, the explanation is very clear, and it’s easy to transfer this to your own firmware in C or whatever else. Now to work this into some of my own projects and see how far I can stretch the 72MHz on the LPC1343 and the few hundred KBs I have left! 🙂 See QB EXpress: Issue #22 for this article from Eclipzer. My advice … if you find this useful save it to a PDF somewhere special.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
