Gesture Sensing and Multi-Touch 3DTouchPad: 2D Multi-Touch Pad with 3D Gesture Sensing The 3DTouchPad (DM160225) converges Microchip’s 2D projected capacitive touch solution with Microchip’s patented GestIC technology for 3D gesture recognition. The 3DTouchPad is a PC peripheral that extends the 2D touch pad with 3D gestures. The 3DTouchpad offers multifinger tracking and surface gestures as well as free-space 3D gestures above the surface. The 3DTouchPad is a powerful accessory to enhance your productivity by providing gestures to interact with your PC as well as a compelling development platform. Microchip provides and SDK/API for app/driver development as well as a Graphical User Interface (GUI). For more information, please visit www.microchip.com/3dtouchpad. Evaluation Tools 3D Gestures for 2D Multi-Touch Displays Gestures are a powerful way to enhance the user interface of a product. They are simple to use and simple to perform. With Microchip, you can now go even futrther by adding 3D gestures to multi-touch displays. By combining 10-finger, multi-touch sensing with 3D gestures up to 20 cm from the display, the touch display we all embrace becomes sensible for the third dimension. Interaction with gloves, prevention of smudging and touchless interaction can all become a reality. Features include: ■ MTCH6303-based 2D multi-touch sensing ■ 10-fi nger touch sensing ■ >100 Hz report rate ■ Extended gesture range of up to 20 cm ■ Complete 3D gesture suite available Please contact Microchip Sales or Marketing for details. MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit (DM160218) and MGC3030 Woodstar Development Kit (DM160226) These kits are a complete modular solution for designing in the low-cost, high-performance MGC3030/3130. System paramertization is guided by Microchip’s AUREA (GUI).
