Microchip Technology introduced the PICDEM Inductive Touch Development Kit, which is an evaluation and development platform for Microchip’s Inductive Touch technology. The PICDEM Inductive Touch Development Kit features a fully-developed inductive-touch board, complete with embossed metal front panel, source code, schematics and a diagnostic software tool that enables designers to evaluate their application. The kit is available for for $69.99.
PICDEM Inductive Touch Development Kit enables engineers to develop inductive touch-sensing applications using standard 8-, 16- or 32-bit PIC microcontrollers (MCUs), or 16-bit dsPIC Digital Signal Controller (DSCs). Factory programmed firmware provides immediate access to all the board’s features through the use of the MPLAB mTouch plug-in. Using a PICkit Serial Analyzer to communicate with the PC, it allows the user to analyze application critical information in real-time as it relates to sensor behavior.
