Electronica Azi International is offering its readers the chance to win the new mTouch Capacitive Touch Evaluation Kit from Microchip. The mTouch Capacitive Touch Evaluation Kit enables designers to quickly and easily develop capacitive touch user-interface applications using Microchip’s 8- and 16-bit PIC® microcontrollers (MCUs). The flexible, comprehensive kit includes two main boards – one populated with a PIC16F72X 8-bit MCU and the other with a PIC24F256GB110 16-bit MCU; four daughter boards for developing capacitive-touch keys, sliders and a matrix; a PICkit™ Serial Analyzer; an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface (GUI); and several code and schematic examples. The modular kit makes it easy for designers to try different keypad configurations, and experiment with touch-pad sizes and shapes using the mother boards.
Touch-sensing technology is increasingly being adopted to improve the look and durability of user interfaces in appliances, consumer-electronic devices, medical electronics, automobiles and many other markets and applications. Microchip’s new MCU-based kit provides a one-chip, highly integrated solution based upon either the PIC16F72X 8-bit or the PIC24FGB 16-bit general purpose MCUs, providing a flexible evaluation platform that lowers costs and shortens time to market.
