Atmel QTouch Library QTouch Library Peripheral Touch Controller USER GUIDE Description ® ® Atmel QTouch Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC) offers built-in hardware for capacitive touch measurement on sensors that function as buttons, sliders, and wheels. The PTC supports both mutual and self-capacitance measurement without the need for any external component. It offers superb sensitivity and noise tolerance, as well as self-calibration, and minimizes the sensitivity tuning effort by the user. The PTC is intended for autonomously performing capacitive touch sensor measurements. The external capacitive touch sensor is typically formed on a PCB, and the sensor electrodes are connected to the analog charge integrator of the PTC using the device I/O pins. The PTC supports mutual capacitance sensors organized as capacitive touch matrices in different X-Y configurations, including Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) sensor grids. In mutual capacitance mode, the PTC requires one pin per X-line (drive line) and one pin per Y-line (sense line). In self-capacitance mode, the PTC requires only one pin with a Y-line driver for each self-capacitance sensor. Features • Implements low-power, high-sensitivity, environmentally robust capacitive touch buttons, sliders, and wheels • Supports mutual capacitance and self-capacitance sensing • Up to 32 buttons in self-capacitance mode • Up to 256 buttons in mutual capacitance mode • Supports lumped mode configuration • One pin per electrode - no external components • Load compensating charge sensing • Parasitic capacitance compensation for mutual capacitance mode • Adjustable gain for superior sensitivity • Zero drift over the temperature and VDD range • No need for temperature or VDD compensation • Hardware noise filtering and noise signal de-synchronization for high conducted immunity • Atmel provided QTouch Library firmware and QTouch Composer tool Atmel-42195M-Peripheral-Touch-Controller_User Guide-07/2016 Product Support For assistance related to QTouch capacitive touch sensing software libraries and related issues, contact your local Atmel sales representative or log on to myAtmel Design Support portal to submit a support request or access a comprehensive knowledge base.
