This development assistance tool supports the development of embedded systems which use the capacitive touch sensors. It supports MCUs of the RX families.
QE for Capacitive Touch is an assistance tool for applications which operate under the e² studio integrated development environment.
For the development of embedded systems that are based on RX-family MCUs and work with capacitive touch sensors, this tool simplifies the initial settings of the touch user interface and the tuning of the sensitivity, thus shortening developing times.
Formerly, Workbench6, an existing development environment to automatically adjust for touch key sensitivity, had to be used in conjunction with the e² studio in development for such systems. However, using the QE for Capacitive Touch allows development for touch sensors from within the e² studio itself.
The GUI makes it easy for even a beginner to develop touch user interfaces.
Simple GUI operations allow even a beginner to create the configuration for use with a touch user interface, monitor the state of input through the touch sensors, and adjust parameters.
Furthermore, since this tool can adjust tuning parameters and reflect the results through display in real-time, it is very useful for finding the appropriate parameters in various situations, such as in the presence of much static electricity or in cases of use with wet hands.
Automatic tuning for touch sensor sensitivity
This tool enables automatic tuning for the sensitivity of the capacitive touch sensors. You can complete basic tuning within a few minutes by following the instructions in the pop-up messages.
Supported FIT Modules
|RX Family||Driver for capacitive touch sensor unit "r_ctsu_qe"||V1.00|
|Middleware for touch sensors "r_touch_qe"||V1.00|
Interlinking with the Smart Configurator eases setting up the pins for use with capacitive touch sensors.
When generating a project to which the FIT module related to capacitive touch sensors is to be added, select the checkbox of "Smart Configurator" to run the Smart Configurator. This makes it easy to configure the settings of pin allocation for use with a capacitive touch sensor from the e² studio.
