App note: Graphic displays with the PIC32

Pretty user interfaces with a PIC 32:

As the demand for Graphical Embedded Applications becomes more popular, so does the need for developing cost effective solutions. Many companies today offer solutions involving an additional internal or external graphics controller as part of a system, which may result in higher costs and more complicated designs. In most cases, for a simple embedded Graphical User Interface (GUI), these graphics controllers are not necessary, but a suitable solution may not be available. One solution that is becoming more popular is to use a controllerless solution. This solution uses microcontroller (MCU) peripherals to create a “virtual” graphics controller for graphics rendering without taking up large amounts of CPU time (in this solution less than 5%).
