In other words, it measures how faithfully the lens reproduces (or transfers) detail from the object to the image produced by the lens. MTF is the spatial frequency response of an imaging system or a component; it is the contrast at a given spatial frequency relative to low frequencies. The essential meaning of MTF is rather simple.

The making of Arduino Arduino Due board (credit: Randi Silberman Klett) Arduino recently unveiled the Arduino Due, a board with a 32-bit Cortex-M3 ARM processor that offers more computing power for makers with complex projects such as FM radios, 3-D printer kits, or drones. Google has also released an Arduino-based developer board that lets an Android phone interact with motors, sensors, and other devices. This permits building Android apps that use the phone’s camera, motion sensors, touch screen, and Internet connectivity to control a display or a robot. Arduino is a low-cost microcontroller board that can be connected to all kinds of sensors, lights, motors, and other devices, with easy-to-learn programming software. Arduino has spawned an international do-it-yourself revolution in electronics.
