Microchip Technology (Chandler, AZ) recently announced the new MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit for 3D gesturing systems.  The kit provides designers with an easy, step-by-step approach to develop 3D gesturing systems with Microchip’s MGC3130 and electrodes that meet their specific space requirements. 

Key Facts:

  • The MGC3130 is a single-chip 3D gesture/free space position tracking solution.  The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit is a complete MGC3130 reference system, consisting of a MGC3130 Module and one example reference electrode. 
  • With several additional reference electrode designs, the Aurea Graphical User Interface Software, and an I2C to USB Bridge Module, the MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit enables an easy design-in of the MGC3130 into several different form factors.
  • The GestIC Technology enabled with the MGC3130 serves a wide range of applications in the computing (e.g., laptops, keyboards, input devices); lighting (e.g., lighting switches and controls); consumer-electronic (e.g., audio docks, printers and copiers); and automotive markets (e.g., automotive interior controls), among others. 
  • The Hillstar Development Kit provides designers with the path to integrate Microchip’s industry-leading technology in their applications, in the shortest possible time.
