QTouch Library for PTC

The QTouch® Library is a royalty-free software library for developing touch applications on AVR and SMART ARM-based microcontrollers with Peripheral Touch Controller (PTC).

Developers can use it to easily integrate touch-sensing capability into their applications. The library can be used to develop single-chip solutions for many control applications or to reduce chip count in more complex applications.

The library supports both self-capacitance and mutual-capacitance acquisition methods.

Note: These libraries do not support AVR or SMART ARM-based microcontrollers without PTC.

QTouch Configurator

QTouch Configurator is integrated into START, and offers innovative, intuitive and a graphical configuration to help designing you touch application.  START is an online tool - no installation is required. When you are done with your configuration, you can download it for use together with your preferred integrated development environment (IDE), and continue development

QT-Configurator
Data Visualizer

Data Visualizer is a program that processes and visualizes data. It allows the designer to plot touch signals in real time to help tune and monitor power consumption, as an example.
