Microchip (Chandler, AZ) has announced a new family of projected-capacitive touch controllers. The MTCH6102 family facilitates design integration of capacitive scanning for touchscreens and touchpads including 11 single-finger gestures to swipe, scroll or double tap. The MTCH6102 enables flexible, scalable solutions to support PCB, ITO or FPC sensors up to 15 channels. The MTCH6102 supports cover lenses up to 3 mm plastic and 5 mm glass and configurable sleep/idle frame rates to optimize for most power budgets with active mode as low as 12 µA. Microchip offers its free Configuration Utility to allow designers to make fast customizations. The MTCH6102 is supported by Microchip's Low-Power Projected-Capacitive Touch Pad Development Kit (part # DM160219).
