Microchip Technology extends mTouchTM technology

by donpedro

Microchip announces the availability of mTouchTM Projected Capacitive Touch-Screen Sensing Technology, the first in a series of patent-pending releases supporting projected capacitive touch-screen solutions across the company’s portfolio of 8-, 16- and 32-bit PIC® MCUs. The technology announcement is supported by the release of the mTouch Projected Capacitive Development Kit, featuring the first device to implement the technology; the 8-bit PIC16F707. Projected capacitive touch sensing extends resistive and existing capacitive touch sensing technology to include multi-touch and gesture sensing, enabling users to implement robust glass-front user interfaces that simplify user interaction. Typical applications include global positioning systems, thermostats, mobile handheld units and other devices that use smaller displays with a finger input.
