Cap Touch 5 Click is a capacitive touch sensing Click board™ which features the CY8CMBR3106S-LQXI CapSense® Express™ controller which enables advanced, yet easy-to-implement, capacitive touch sensing user interface solutions. It supports up to 16 capacitive sensing inputs, eliminates time-consuming firmware development. This controller is ideal for implementing capacitive buttons, sliders, and proximity sensing solutions with minimal development-cycle times.
Cap Touch 5 Click is supported by a mikroSDK compliant library, which includes functions that simplify software development.
The Cap Touch 5 Click features the CY8CMBR3106S-LQXI CapSense® Express™ controller which has an advanced analogue sensing channel and the Capacitive Sigma Delta PLUS (CSD PLUS) sensing algorithm, which delivers a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of greater than 100:1 to ensure touch accuracy even in extremely noisy environments. This controller is enabled with Infineon’s SmartSense™ Auto-tuning algorithm, which compensates for manufacturing variations and dynamically monitors and maintains optimal sensor performance in all environmental conditions. In addition, SmartSense Auto-tuning enables a faster time-to-market by eliminating the time-consuming manual tuning efforts during development and production ramp-up.
Advanced features, such as LED brightness control, proximity sensing, and system diagnostics, save development time. These controllers enable robust liquid-tolerant designs by eliminating false touches due to mist, water droplets, or streaming water. The CapSense controller locks up the user interface in firmware to prevent touch inputs in streaming water.
Additionally, it implements the advanced noise immunity algorithm, EMC, for stable operation in extremely noisy conditions. Besides that, it is also perfectly suited for low-power applications, such as those operated by a battery, when a capacitive sensing controller that has ultra-low average power consumption have to be selected. The CY8CMBR3106S-LQXI controller draws an average current of 22 µA per sensor.
The Cap Touch 5 Click supports four CapSense buttons. It’s sensitivity can be specified individually for each CapSense button and slider. Higher sensitivity values can be used for thick overlays or small button diameters, while lower sensitivity values should be used for large buttons or thin overlays to minimise power consumption. Therefore, this Click board™ comes without the overlay, so it is up to the user to choose the desired application and implementation.
