EP&Dee and Microchip are offering readers the chance to win a MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit (DM160218), for 3D gesturing systems. The kit provides designers with
an easy step-by-step approach to develop 3D gesturing systems with Microchip’s MGC3130 and electrodes that meet their specific space requirements. The MGC3130 is the world’s first single-chip 3D gesture/free space position tracking solution. The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit is a complete reference system consisting of an MGC3130 module and one example 4-Layer reference electrode with 95 × 60mm sensitive area.
With several additional reference electrode designs, the Aurea Graphical User Interface Software, and an I2C-to-USB Bridge Module, the kit enables easy design-in of the MGC3130 into several different form factors.
The GestIC® Technology enabled with the MGC3130 serves a wide range of applications in computing, such as laptops, keyboards, input devices; lighting applications including lighting switches and controls; consumer electronics such as audio docks, printers and copiers; and automotive markets for automotive interior controls, among others.
The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit enables customers to integrate an advanced 3D hand position and gesturing user interface into virtually any electronic product using a modular approach with complete documentation, reference layouts, hardware and a software GUI.
