Design Considerations

The user interface designs in consumer electronics have gone through a revolutionary leap in the past decade, during which Cypress's Programmable System-on-Chip has replaced more than a billion mechanical buttons. Now we are tapping into the appliance revolution where homeowners want sophisticated, elegant and safely operated appliances.

There are various challenges that you may face while designing for today’s market needs, including overcoming the noisy and wet environment, integrating  system function such as LED, buzzer, temperature, humidity sensing with a low cost solution.

PSoC can help you to solve these problems:

  • CapSense works under water droplets and detects touch through curved or thick overlays
  • SmartSense Auto-tuning = No manual tuning + Better EMI immunity
  • Cypress provides Class B self-test libraries for safe operation
  • The PSoC one-chip solution integrates CapSense, LED and LCD drivers and liquid level sensing
