Description
The STMPE16M31PX capacitive touchkey
controllers offer highly versatile and flexible
capacitive sensing capabilities in one single chip.
The devices integrate up to 16 capacitive sensing
channels which are highly sensitive and noise
tolerant. Eight independent PWM controllers allow
to control up to 16 LEDs with brightness control,
ramping and blinking capabilities. The I2C
interface supports up to 400 kHz communication
with the system host. A very wide dynamic range
allows most applications to work without
hardware tuning.
A single STMPE16M31PX device can be used to
implement a complete notebook multimedia
control bar with eight capacitive touchkeys,
proximity sensor with sensitivity up to 5 cm and
eight independently controlled LED.

1.1 Power scheme
The STMPE16M31PX is powered by a 2.7- 5.5 V supply. An internal voltage regulator
regulates this supply into 1.8 V for core operation. It is recommended to connect a 1 µF
capacitor at VCC pin for filtering purpose. The VIO powers all GPIOs directly, if any LED
driving is required on the GPIO, the VIO should be at least 3.3 V.

Doc ID 17058 Rev 2 9/75
2 I2C interface module
The STMPE16M31PX has 2 physical I2C address pins, allowing 4 different I2C address
settings.
The features that are supported by the I2C interface module are the following ones:
–I
2C slave device
Operates at VCC
Compliant to Philips I2C specification version 2.1
Supports standard (up to 100 kbps) and fast (up to 400 kbps) modes
7-bit and 10-bit device addressing modes
General call
– Start/restart/stop
The features that are not supported are:
Hardware general call
CBUS compatibility
High-speed (3.4 Mbps) mode
2.1 Device operation
Start condition
A Start condition is identified by a falling edge of SDA while SCL is stable at high state. A
Start condition must precede any data/command transfer. The device continuously
monitors for a Start condition and does not respond to any transaction unless one is
encountered.
Stop condition
A Stop condition is identified by a rising edge of SDA while SCL is stable at high state. A
Stop condition terminates the communication between the slave device and bus master. A
read command that is followed by NoAck can be followed by a Stop condition to force the
slave device into idle mode. When the slave device is in idle mode, it is ready to receive the
next I2C transaction. A Stop condition at the end of a write command stops the write
operation to registers.

Acknowledge bit (ACK)
The acknowledge bit is used to indicate a successful byte transfer. The bus transmitter
releases the SDA after sending eight bits of data. During the ninth bit, the receiver pulls the
SDA low to acknowledge the receipt of the eight bits of data. The receiver may leave the
SDA in high state if it would to not acknowledge the receipt of the data.
Data input
The device samples the data input on SDA on the rising edge of the SCL. The SDA signal
must be stable during the rising edge of SCL and the SDA signal must change only when
SCL is driven low.
Memory addressing
For the bus master to communicate to the slave device, the bus master must initiate a Start
condition and be followed by the slave device address. Accompanying the slave device
address, there is a Read/W bit (R/W). The bit is set to 1 for Read and 0 for Write operation.
If a match occurs on the slave device address, the corresponding device gives an
acknowledgement on the SDA during the 9th bit time. If there is no match, it deselects itself
from the bus by not responding to the transaction. The register memory map of the device is
8-bit address width. Therefore, the maximum number of register is 256 registers of 8-bit
width.
Ta bl e 6 illustrates the device operating modes that are supported.

STMPE16M31PX Read operations
Doc ID 17058 Rev 2 13/75
3 Read operations
Read operations for one or more bytes
A write is first performed to load the base register address into the address counter but
without sending a Stop condition. Then, the bus master sends a reStart condition and
repeats the Device Address with the R/W bit set to 1. The slave device acknowledges and
outputs the content of the addressed byte. If no more data is to be read, the bus master
must not acknowledge the byte and terminates the transfer with a Stop condition.
If the bus master acknowledges the data byte, then it can continue to perform the data
reading. To terminate the stream of data byte, the bus master must not acknowledge the
last output byte and follow by a Stop condition. The data fetched are from consecutive
addresses. After the last memory address, the Address Counter 'rolls-over' and the device
continue to output data from the memory address of 0x00.
Acknowledgement in read operation
For the above read command, the slave device waits, after each byte read, for an
acknowledgement during the 9th bit time. If the bus master does not drive the SDA to low
state (no acknowledgement by the master), then the slave device terminates and switches
back to its idle mode, waiting for the next command.

Write operations STMPE16M31PX
14/75 Doc ID 17058 Rev 2
4 Write operations
4.1 Write operations for one or more bytes
A write is first performed to load the base register address into the Address Counter without
sending a Stop condition. After the bus master receives an acknowledgement from the
slave device, it may start to send a data byte to the register (pointed by the Address
Counter). The slave device again acknowledges and the bus master terminates the transfer
with a Stop condition.
If the bus master would like to continue to write more data, it can just continue write
operation without issuing the Stop condition. After the bus master writes the last data byte
and the slave device acknowledges the receipt of the last data, the bus master may
terminate the write operation by sending a Stop condition. When the Address Counter
reaches the last memory address, it 'rolls-over' on the next data byte write.

STMPE16M31PX General call address
Doc ID 17058 Rev 2 15/75
5 General call address
A general call address is a transaction with the slave address of 0x00 and R/W = 0. When a
general call address is made, the GPIO expander responds to this transaction with an
acknowledgement and behaves as a slave-receiver mode. The meaning of a general call
address is defined in the second byte sent by the master-transmitter.
Note: All other second byte values will be ignored.
Note: Please allow a gap of approximately 2 µs gap before the next I2C transaction after the
General Call of 0x04 or 0x06.
Table 7. Definition of the second byte of the I2C transaction
R/W Second byte
value Definition
0 0x06
2-byte transaction in which the second byte tells the slave device to
perform a soft reset and write (or latch in) the 2-bit programmable part of
the slave address.
0 0x04
2-byte transaction in which the second byte tells the slave device not to
perform a soft reset and write (or latch in) the 2-bit programmable part of
the slave address.
0 0x00 Not allowed as second byte.

Sensor clock is 2 MHz / ( PRBS_Factor * SCLK_DIV[2:0] )
PRBS factor is a pseudo-random sequence of number, ranging from 1-8. This is used to reduce
the effect of surrounding EMI on the sensor. Average of this factor is approximately 2.5
Effective sampling rate is 2 MHz/ (2.5*SCLK_DIV[2:0]).
Maximum total sampling rate : 2MHz/(2.5*64) = 12.5 kHz
Minimum total sampling rate : 2 MHz/(2.5*1024) = 780 Hz
If N channel is active, the per-channel sampling rate is “total sampling rate / N”.

The STMPE16M31PX integrates 8 independent PWM controllers capable of blinking and
brightness control.
Each of the PWM controllers can be programmed to execute a series of blinking/brightness
control actions. One PWM controller could be mapped to more than one GPIO, allowing
multiple GPIO outputs to share a PWM controller.
Each PWM controller can be connected to any of GPIO channel through the routing network
which is controlled by GPIOn_PWM_CFG register (n = GPIO channel number).

11 PWM controller
The PWM controller allows to control the brightness, ramping/fading and blinking of LEDs.
The STMPE16M31PX features 8 independent PWM controllers.
The PWM controllers outputs are connected to the GPIO through the PWM array controller.
The PAC provides the following list of flexibility to the overall PWM’s system:
Each GPIO may utilize the output of 1 of the 8 PWM controllers.
Up to 16 GPIO may be controlled by the same PWM at the same time.
Each of the PWM could be programmed to be triggered by a touch sensing input.
Note: The PWM cannot be programmed to be triggered by a proximity sensing input.
The PWM controller uses a base clock of 512 kHz, clock pulses have a variable duty cycle
of 0 to 100% in 16 steps. The PWM’s frequency is 32 kHz (to be out of audio range).

13.1 Sampling rate calculation
The capacitive sensor operates with a 2 MHz base clock, a single capacitive sensor scans
up to 16 active channels.
The SCLK_DIV divides the sensor clock by 32-1024, giving 2 kHz-67.5 kHz sensor clock.
For capacitive sensing, a PRBS sequence is utilized to remove the effect of surrounding
noise. This PRBS has an average value of 4.5.
The effective total sampling rate is thus 2 kHz-67.5 kHz divided by 4.5, giving 440 Hz –
14 kHz.
If all 16channels of capacitive sensors are active, the channel conversion rate is thus
440 Hz/16 = 27.5 Hz (Min), 14 kHz/16 = 875 Hz (Max)
Using the maximum MAF setting (18 remove 2), the maximum filtered channel output rate is
875 Hz/18 = 48.6 Hz.

13.2 Sensor resolution
The capacitive sensor hardware in the STMPE16M31PX devices has a sensitivity of 15 fF
and a range of 512 steps giving it a dynamic range of 7.5 pF.
The impedance reading is the output of an internal MAF (median averaging filter). As up to
16 samples are taken for each reading, the impedance reading is the sum of 16 of 9-bit
samples.
To allow maximum consistency, the 3 impedance readings are always 13-bit, whichever
MAF setting is used.
The touch variance (TVR) and enviromental variance (EVR) registers are specified in a 9-bit
format. For comparison with the impedances, the TVR and EVR would be internally shifted
4 bits up.
13.3 Auto-tuning
The capacitive sensor hardware in the STMPE16M31PX devices has a sensitivity of 15 fF
and a range of 512 steps giving it a dynamic range of 7.5 pF. This means that at any time,
the device is able to sense a change in capacitance up to 7.5 pF. When the channel
capacitance moves out of the 7.5 pF window, the auto tuning feature kicks in to ensure
proper sensing operation.

13.4 Locked impedance
Locked impedance is data available in channel data the moment 0x06 is written into
“channel data type register”. Writing a different value into the “channel data type register”
allows the locked impedance to be refreshed.
In actual application, software writes 0x06, reads locked impedance, writes 0x00, writes
0x06, and reads the next set of data.
For data type 0x04-0x05, data are constantly being refreshed, even as it is being accessed.
If accessed slowly, the full set of data may have been sampled at significantly different time.
13.5 Calibration
Calibration event is performed in every period which is programmable from the calibration
interval register (0x76). In each calibration event, 8 impedance samples are collected and
averaged. The time period between samples is programmable from CAL_MOD (model
register (0x77).

TVR Hysteresis
When there is no touch, the value of TVR is used as threshold to determine touch condition.
If touch is detected, the touch detection threshold is changed to TVR-(HYS*4), hence the
effective value of hysteresis is 0-256.

Write ‘1’ to initiate unconditional forced auto-tuning to center the static impedance value in the

Read ‘1’ if the auto-tuning process in progress
Read ‘0’ if the auto-tuning process has been completed.
It is required that upon start up the system, this command is called once.
When the auto-tuning is executed in the presence of finger on the sensor, the ‘touch’ status will
become ‘no-touch’ after completion of the process. Once finger is removed, the auto-calibration
will take care of this situation allowing the detection of next ‘touch’ event.

13.6 Definition of data accessible through channel data register
Table 14. Types of data accessible through the channel data register
Data name Definition
TVR TVR (touch variance register) is a threshold defined by system, of which, if
the sense impedance changed by a magnitude more than the associated
TVR, this channel is considered touched. The result of this comparison is
directly accessible in the TOUCH_DET register.
EVR EVR (environmental variance register) is a threshold defined by system, of
which, if the sensed impedance changed by a magnitude less than the
associated EVR, this is considered an environmental change and the device
will calibrate the internal reference (calibrated impedance) accordingly.
Channel delay Channel delay is used to tune the individual channel into effective
measurement range. This field is 6-bit (0-63). Each bit in this field represents
approximately 0.5 pF capacitance.
Impedance This field is a real time reflection of impedance measured at the
corresponding channel. As capacitance is inversely proportional to
impedance, this field reduces in value when capacitance on the channel
increases.
This field is of 13-bit length. The least significant 4 bits are results of internal
processing and should not be used. The actual impedance data could be
obtained by shifting the [Impedance] 4 bits to the right.

This field contains an internal reference used by the device to decide whether
a touch has occurred. This value is adjusted regularly (calibration) by the
device automatically.
Locked impedance Data in this field is similar to data in impedance field, except that once this
data type is chosen, the device maintains a complete set of impedance data
in this field and stop refreshing it.
This is useful for the application where it is required that all impedance data
are sampled within a very short time.

14 Touchkey and proximity sensing controller
The touchkey controller processes raw capacitance measurement data into “touch/no-
touch” boolean data for easy usage. The key filter unit provides additional flexibility by
allowing the system to define a maximum number of keys that could be detected and
considered active, based on the amount of impedance change detected.
The proximity sensor using a technique called ‘dithering’ to increase the sensitivity of one
selected channel. Dithering factor (configurable from 4 - 32x) determines the sensitivity of
proximity sensor.

Writing '1' to this bit forces the proximity sensing module to use the current dithered impedance
as calibrated dithered impedance. After writing '1' to this bit, I2C should monitor the calibration
status bit ( Prox Data Port 1, bit 6). On reading '1' in calibration status bit, I2C must write '0' in
forced proximity calibration bit to complete the calibration action.
