The Little CapSense Button That Could
The little CapSense button that could:
• migrate to large multi touch solutions
• offer the best noise immunity
• implement haptics feedback
• sense liquid level and proximity
• support SmartSense™ auto tuning
• compensate environmental and process variation
• automatically adapt threshold setting
• shorten EMS test time and get reliability approval
It has been a very joyful week at Cypress San Jose headquarter office, where the international FAE conference is being held. I salute engineers and always enjoy their presence, because they are the builders of our modern world. They mediate every day of our life with delightful, robust and intelligent products, the result of engineers quietly sweating on their work.
Today, I had lunch with two engineers who both have been intensively involved in CapSense solutions. One of them is form China focusing on home appliance and the other one is from US specializing in automotive applications. Though coming from completely different cultures, 5 minutes later, they realized that they are one-hearted when it comes to the touch sensing domain. 5 minutes and 1 second later, one of them grabbed his laptop to show his new friend tricks in the latest dual channel CapSense (CSD2x) user module in PSoC Designer. 30 minutes of nods and shakes later, they exchanged respects to each other not just as colleges, but also as friends who live across the world.
This post was suggested by them: “The Little CapSense Button That Could”, inspired by is a moralistic children's story “The Little Engine that Could”. The book is used to highlight the value of optimism and hard work. Before we, Cypress, become the market leader of CapSense, we say "I--think--I--can, I--think--I--can." And now, we simply say "I thought I could, I thought I could." :-)
