NXP's Ready Play Solutions simplify design cycles and enables scalability in applications and systems; it also combines the low cost of a multi-touch resistive screen technology with the high traffic robustness of capacitive touch. Xtrinsic capacitive and resistive touch-sensing platforms (CRTouch) enable resistive touch screens to handle basic gesture recognition. CRTouch allows also the addition of up to four capacitive electrodes to your system, all packaged on a 5 x 5 mm, lead-free, 32-pin QFN. It supports 4- and 5-wire touch screens and communicates over UART and IIC communication protocols.
CRTouch is the industry's first device that combines 4- and 5-wire resistive screen controller with basic gesture recognition, and up to four capacitive touch-sensing electrodes, all encompassed in a single integrated circuit. This allows the implementation of both technologies reducing space, software development cost, and time to market.
