AR1100 mTouch™ USB Controller

Microchip's mTouch analog resistive USB touch-screen controller

Image of Microchip Technology's AR1100 mTouch™ USB Controller Building upon the AR1000 Analog Resistive Touch-Screen Controller series, Microchip's AR1100 controller is a high-performance, USB plug-and-play device that offers advanced calibration capabilities as a USB mouse or single-input digitizer. The new controller is available as a turnkey chip or board product, supporting all 4-, 5-, and 8-wire touch screens, with free drivers for most major operating systems. The AR1100 is an ideal solution for customers who want a drop-in touch controller to universally support their entire standard resistive-touch portfolio.

Features
  • Power-saving sleep mode
  • Industrial temperature range
  • Built in drift compensation algorithm
  • 128 bytes of user EEPROM
  • Touch modes: off, stream, down, up, and more.
  • Touch sensor support: 4-, 5-, and 8-wire analog resistive
  • Touch resolution: 10-bit resolution maximum

AR1100BRD Development Kit - The AR1100BRD Touch Screen Controller Board supports large displays like industrial controls, self-service kiosks, and POS terminals, as well as smaller tablet displays, handheld consumer devices, and medical devices.

DV102012 Development Kit - Kit includes the AR1000 development board, a 7” four-wire resistive touch screen, a PICkit™ Serial Analyzer and all necessary interface cables, as well as a CD containing technical documentation and all necessary software. The CD also includes an easy-to-use AR1000 configuration utility, which has a Graphical User Interface (GUI) that enables designers to test all user-configurable options with the AR1000 controllers.
