Features

  • Touch sensing evaluation boards
    • A) Evaluation board for basic touch sensing operations: keys, key matrix, sliders, and touch wheels suitable for sensing applications employing materials such as acrylic, glass, wood, or plastic, covered with fabric, etc.
    • B) Evaluation board for proximity sensing (non-contact sensing applications): Applications where hygiene is an issue, or where the operator wears thick latex gloves or mittens
    • C) Evaluation board for trackpads: Applications using position and direction sensing to mimic the functionality of a PC mouse
  • (2) Workbench6 automatic tuning tool
    • Touch sensor tuning data is output as project source files that are compatible with Renesas' CS+ and e² studio integrated development environments.
    • Supports the self-capacitance method, which is particularly well suited to applications requiring high sensitivity or proximity detection; the mutual-capacitance method, which provides excellent water resistance and matrix key support using multiple keys; and patterns that mix self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance - an industry first. This makes it possible to build systems that are like conventional touch key panels with proximity sensors added.

Applications

  • Home Appliances
  • Industrial Machinery
  • Robust Touch-Based Applications
