Touch Screen and Touch Pad Controllers Projected Capacitive Technology Microchip’s projected capacitive technology is available as turnkey touch controllers or solutions across the portfolio of 8-, 16- and 32-bit PIC microcontrollers. You can use a dedicated controller for touch or integrate additional applications with touch into a single MCU. Our flexible, royalty-free source code and turnkey projected capacitive touch controllers provide you with solutions to create the innovative user interfaces that consumers desire. Lowest Power Touch Pads: MTCH6102 Microchip offers key advantages in touch pad design with low-power and low-cost solutions to enable simple touch designs with short time-to-market. Microchip leverages eXtreme Low Power (XLP) technology to provide industryleading low power touch solutions to maximize battery life. Example power measurements for a typical application with 11 channels using the MTCH6102 at 2V are: ■ Standby <1 W ■ Approach <30 W ■ Active <300 W How It Works Projected Capacitive Touch Sensors operate by measuring the tiny change in capacitance on an electrode due to the influence of a human finger or other object. ■ One or two thin conductive layers ■ Screen is confi gured as rows and columns ■ Point of contact identifi ed by change in capacitance of row and column cells electrodes Included Gestures All turnkey controllers (MTCH61XX/MTCH63XX) detect (multi-)finger gestures.
