Top Ten Reasons to Upgrade to PSoC Designer 5.4 - #2: New SmartSense User Modules
Touch sensing has become an essential part of system design, and no solution is as powerful and easy to use as Cypress' award-winning CapSense technology. #2 in our list is the introduction of new SmartSense user modules.
In PSoC Designer 5.4, we bring you SmartSense2X_EMC for the CY8C2xx45 and CY8C28xxx families. Additionally, we've extended the use of SmartSense2X to the CY8C28xxx family.
SmartSense2X_EMC not only saves time by automatically tuning your capacitive sensors and dynamically adjusting the tuning during operation, it also increases end-systems' immunity to electromagnetic interference, providing the ability to operate in high-noise environments. These user modules also support FMEA (failure mode effects and analysis) functionality, which tells you automatically if any of your capacitive sensor connections become broken or shorted. Each of these capabilities is crucial for home appliance products, but also useful to a broad range of additional system types.
