          Why create your touch-based application with Microchip?

          Save Time and Money in Touch Development

          Shortening the time to market is essential for your revenue stream. Microchip offers easy-to-use tools for you to accelerate development of your touch-enabled products.

          Touch Technology

          Noise Robustness
          Noise Robust-Gray
          Noise, also known as conducted noise, is a common challenge for touch implementations. 

          Microchip provides state-of-the-art software and hardware filters to overcome noise. Noise-avoidance technologies, such as frequency hopping are used.

          • High Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR)
          • IEC61000, EFT and BCI tested
          Low(est) Power
          Requirements for low power are not limited to wearable devices - it’s a welcome addition in all markets. 

          Dedicated hardware on PIC, AVR and SAM devices enable the lowest-power touch with capacitive sensing below 5 μA.

          Water-Tolerant Touch
          Water-tolerant touch is a key feature that Microchip has integrated into turnkey and MCU-based touch solutions. 

          Users expect their touch interfaces to work well in a range of conditions (including wet surfaces) without the need to clean their hands or wipe them dry every time they use their devices.

          Safety-Certified Touch Sensing
          Safety Touch-Gray
          Functional safety, Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA), is a market driver for touch.

          For the market of appliances, Microchip offers products (turnkey and libraries) certified according to IEC/UL 60730 Safety Class-B standards. Certificates are published on Microchip’s website at www.shengzai.net.cn/touch.


          Microchip touch solutions support automotive functional safety requirements. Please contact Microchip for details to get your next design safely on the road.

          Touch on Metal - Waterproof Touch

          Microchip offers Metal-over-Capacitive (MoC) technology enabling touch applications across many conditions, including:

          • Metal surfaces, stainless steel or aluminum
          • Sense through any thickness of gloves
          • Waterproof designs
          • Braille-enabled interfaces

          Metal-over-capacitive technology is compatible with all turnkey and MCU-based touch products.

          High Button Count Support - Mutual Touch Sensing
          High Button Count-Gray

          Microchip has refined and enhanced the method to scan a large number of buttons as a matrix. Mutual touch enables costs - savings in many aspects:

          • Reduced amount of feeding lines to slim connecting (flexPCB) tails
          • Reduces pin count required for touch to enable cost-efficient small-footprint parts
          • Dramatically reduced development time by Microchip’s unique inherent feeding line length compensation
