Capacitive touch controllers with integrated haptic effect
Atmel, a leader in microcontroller and touch solutions, today announced it has integrated haptics capability to its QTouch capacitive touch controllers to support buttons, sliders and wheels (BSWs). This integration allows our customers to have a richer experience with touch and haptics feedback when using Atmel QTouch capacitive touch controllers.
Leveraging Immersion’s market-leading TouchSense haptics technology, the Atmel AT42QT1085 (8-touch button) is the first capacitive touch controller in the industry to provide haptics support for BSWs for 14 unique haptic effects. Haptics enables design engineers the ability to add tactile feedback to greatly enhance the user experience for applications such as mobile phones, game consoles, navigation devices, cameras, Netbooks, appliances, PCs and more.
