SAM & AVR Supported Tools
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 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.
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.
QTouch Tools for SAM with PTC
QTouch® Composer is a complete set of tools for developing and tuning capacitive buttons, sliders and wheels designs—is now fully integrated into Atmel Studio 7. It provides the most advanced, integrated environment for development of touch touch-enabled AVR® or ARM® processor-based applications.
