Capacitive Touch Controllers, Microcontrollers with Touch and 3D Gesture Controllers

Upgrade your product to include an innovative, modern and attractive user interface. Replacing mechanical push buttons with a touch- or gesture-controlled interface is an excellent way to add value and advanced features to your application, increase customer appeal and improve your product’s performance and reliability.

We offer solutions for every type of use case, from single buttons to touchpads and touchscreens to proximity detection and 3D gesture control for a huge assortment of consumer, industrial and automotive applications. Our products include turnkey capacitive touch controllers, touch libraries for implementing touch sensing on most PIC®, AVR® and SAM microcontrollers (MCUs) and single-chip solutions for adding gesture recognition to almost any product. We can help you conquer design challenges like overcoming noisy environments, reducing power consumption in wearables and other power-sensitive designs, supporting functional safety requirements and implementing touch in wet environments or for gloved fingers. You can leverage our deep knowledge and extensive experience in providing touch and gesture solutions over many years, plus our global technical support team and easy-to-use development tools and resources, to simplify and speed up your development of your touch-enabled products.

Complex Gesture Detection at the Edge with Machine Learning

We now enable the detection of complex gestures at the edge, right on the MCU that is performing the touch sensing. This solution gives you the freedom to add any gesture to a 2D touchpad or touchscreen that uses one of our MCUs.
