The 3DTouchPad includes a 6” diagonal sensor board with Microchip’s 2D and 3D gesture-sensing components integrated into a circuit board on the underside. The touch pad comes with a USB cable for connection to a PC and a development software package to enable designers to experiment with built-in gestures and to develop gestures of their own.
The 3DTouchPad’s robust 3D capability is based on Microchip’s GestIC® technology, which detects 3D gestures over a range of up to 10cm. The 3DTouchPad also benefits from Microchip’s highly responsive projected-capacitive 2D multi-touch circuitry, which supports up to ten touch points and multi-finger surface gestures.
In the 3DTouchPad, the 2D multi-touch capability is backed by Microchip’s new capacitive touch-screen line driver, the MTCH652.
The new 3DTouchPad includes driverless, out-of-the-box features for the Windows® 7 and Windows 8.x and the Apple® MacOS® X operating systems. The product is also provided with a free downloadable GUI and a software development kit with application-programming interfaces.
