Demo Board Offers Capacitive Touch
Needing no external components, Microchip Technology’s PICDEM Touch Sense 2 demo board (Part # DM164128) includes the mTouch Sensing Solution software development kit (SDK) for capacitive touch. The component comes with a 16-bit PIC24FJ256GB110 MCU that integrates a charge time measurement unit (CTMU) and USB On-the-GO (OTG). The board exhibits 256 KB Flash memory and implementation of user-interface functions, such as QVGA touch-screen displays, speech-based audio prompts and USB connectivity. The device’s Windows-based mTouch diagnostic tool interface uses capacitive touch-sensing keys and sliders to evaluate capacitive touch in applications in the consumer, appliance, medical, industrial and automotive markets. Software libraries, source code and other support materials are included. Pricing for the board, SDK and USB cable is $99.99.
