Even if scaling and rotation are very common operations in many digital imaging, due to the computational complexity, Hardware implementations of arbitrary anti-aliasing scaling and rotation has been very rarely challenged. The authors propose an efficient and arbitrary anti-aliasing scaling and ration scheme based on index-table. By using this scheme, 1 degree rotation and 1% scaling can be implemented in hardware very efficiently. Another advantage of this scheme is that scaling and rotation are analyzed from a unified viewpoint so that the two operations can be easily merged in an efficient implementation.
