CapSense® Express™™ is a family of capacitive sensing devices that helps you do rapid prototyping of touch-sensing interfaces. Use the one-button and two-button low-pin-count devices to replace one or two mechanical switches with touch-sensing buttons. This application note describes how to use PSoC® Designer™ 5.0 to quickly configure and tune CapSense Express devices.
Introduction

Cypress’s CapSense® is a widely accepted technology often used to replace mechanical switches and push buttons with little or no impact on the design. The high-performance, fixed-function family of devices does not require any programming effort, unlike other CapSense-enabled PSoC mixed-signal controllers. CapSense Express is a factory-configured plug-and-play family for standard designs, though some designs might require changing the tuning parameters of the CapSense block or the control logic of digital outputs.
