Evaluation Kit Aids In Developing Capacitive-Touch Interfaces

The mTouch Capacitive Touch Evaluation Kit (part number DM183026) 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. It also has four daughter boards for developing capacitive-touch keys, sliders, and a matrix; a PICkit Serial Analyzer; an easy-to-use Graphical User Interface; 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. The mTouch Capacitive Touch Evaluation Kit is available today for $84.95. MICROCHIP TECHNOLOGY INC., Chandler, AZ. (480) 792-7200.
