Cypress Expands CapSense Express Mechanical Button Replacement Family
Cypress Semiconductor  (San Jose, CA) has announced a new CapSense Express capacitive touch-sensing controller optimized to replace mechanical buttons in front panels for industrial and consumer applications, portable medical devices, gaming devices, and home automation systems. The new low-power CY8CMBR2110 device supports up to 10 buttons and drives up to 10 LEDs with fully configurable LED effects. Features include:
- Industry’s lowest power consumption with supply current in run mode of 15 uA per button and a 100 nA Deep-Sleep mode.
- Operation over a 1.71 to 5.5 V range.
- Robust sensing in noisy environments using Cypress’s patented CapSense Sigma Delta (CSD) sensing method.
- Integrated voltage regulator to address power supply noise, as well as filters for any spurious noise.
