2D-Multi-touch-with-3D-Gesture-Development-Kit-(DV102014)

Microchip’s DV102014 development kit is a complete reference system for evaluation and design in of 2D (Projected Capacitive) and 3D (GestIC ) human machine interfaces:

  • Combines 2D multi touch with 3D gestures for displays
  • «Out of the box» experience – no code development
  • Parameterization, diagnostics and settings by Aurea 2.0, a free downloadable graphical user interface (GUI).

2D PCAP features:

  • Multi-Touch up to 10 touches
  • 5 touches typically at 100Hz+ each
  • MTCH6303 touch IC works with with MTCH652 TX Line driver for superior signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)
  • Integrated single and multi-finger gesture recognition suite including taps, swipes, scrolling and pinching and zooming
  • Advanced DSP processing provides noise avoidance techniques

3D GestIC:

  • Sensing Type: E-Field
  • Detection Range: up to 20 cm
  • Single chip 3D gesture recognition solution – MGC3130

MGC3030-MGC3130

The MGC3030 Hillstar / MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kits enable the complete design in of GestIC® technology-based single chip gesture solutions for 3D gesture based user interfaces. The kits contain:

  • MGC3030 / MGC3130 Module
  • I2C to USB Bridge Module
  • Reference electrode (95 × 60 mm sensitive area)

Microchip provides an extensive and growing collection of reference designs, reference codes and tutorial videos:

  • 2 / 4 layer design in small to max size
  • Round/rectangular/frame shaped designs
  • Host code source code references
  • Tutorial videos for design-in of GestIC technology

Design-in of GestIC technology is guided by the Aurea Graphical User Interface (GUI), with its built-in help and support system. Aurea is also the platform to parameterize your MGC solution to your requirements and use case.

The 3DTouchPad is a PC peripheral to extend a 2D touchpad with 3D gestures. It utilizes Microchip’s Projected Capacitive (PCAP) sensor solutions, as well as Microchip’s GestIC 3D gesture technology. The 3DTouchpad offers multi-finger tracking and surface gestures, as well as free-space 3D gestures above the surface.

The 3DTouchPad comes with a suite of software, including a comprehensive SDK for Windows® 7/Windows 8 operating systems that allows feature-rich development of apps and drivers. The SDK is fully documented and loaded with compelling features.

The 3DTouchPad also offers an exceptional out-of-the-box experience.
