CODE-FREE CAPSENSE
The world leader in touch sensing solutions is driving the Touch Revolution across many
industries – wireless, consumer, computation, white goods, and automotive. Cypress’s
CapSense Capacitive Touch Sensing portfolio, powered by PSoC® Mixed-Signal
Array technology, represents the most diverse, fl exible, and easy-to-use touch sensing
solutions that enable designers to speed their time to market. The newest addition,
CapSense Express, offers the fastest time to market in the industry.
The CapSense Express Touch Sensing Controller, supported by PSoC Express
Visual Embedded System Design Tool and the CapSense Express Confi guration Tool,
supports up to ten general purpose I/Os for buttons, a multi-segment slider, LEDs, and
other general purpose functions. Simply select which function is needed for each I/O
in the menu-driven CapSense Express Confi guration Tool within PSoC Express and tune
the parameters before applying the fi rmware to silicon. Your design is done in record
speed – all without having to write a single line of code. It is that easy and quick to
provide touch sensing capability to any application.
