QE for Capacitive Touch: Development Assistance Tool for Capacitive Touch Sensors

Adding and Setting Middleware Related to QE for Capacitive Touch

RA Family: Capacitive touch sensor Pins and Stacks Configuration can be easily performed in conjunction with the Configurator

The following FSP components for RA family are supported.

  • CTSU (Capacitive Touch Sensing Unit) Driver "r_ctsu"
  • Touch Driver "rm_touch"

Add the FSP components related to the Capacitive Touch Sensor and generate project content for the RA family MCU that has the Capacitive Touch Sensor function. Then, run the pins configuration function. In this mode, you can easily set up stack configuration (such as pin assignment for use with capacitive touch sensor pins or Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL)).
