Microchip Technology, Inc. releases its PICDEM Touch Sense 1 demo board for capacitive touch-sensing applications. The easy-to-use board comes with a PICkit serial analyzer and the royalty-free mTouch sensing solution software development kit (SDK). The board and supporting materials provide a complete platform for implementing capacitive touch-sensing interfaces using the 8-bit Flash PIC microcontrollers. Equipped with capacitive touch-sensing keys and sliders, the board enables designers to evaluate capacitive touch sensing in their applications using the PICkit serial analyzer and Windows-based mTouch diagnostic tool, a graphical user interface (GUI) that is included in the mTouch Sensing Solution SDK. Libraries, source code and other support materials come with the board.
