SmartSense™ is the latest advance from Cypress - the world leader in Capacitive Sensing. With SmartSense’ Cypress has incorporated a sophisticated algorithm which automatically optimizes CapSense performance in a wide range of applications such as Multi-media buttons, Printers, Bluetooth Headsets etc. Many generic microcontroller solutions available in the market today require customers to identify and optimize many parameters making the tuning a time-consuming process. SmartSense makes Cypress CapSense the easiest solution to use in the market reducing time to market significantly.
Key Features :
Automatically adjust for manufacturing variation e.g., parasitic capacitance change due to PCB process variation
Easily tunable for multiple overlay material and thickness with one configurable parameter
Available in Cypress’s new low-power, 1.71V CapSense family : CY8C20xx6A, CY8CMBRxxxx
Support for up to 33 CapSense I/Os and 6 Sliders
Use with Proximity Sensing, Waterproofing, LED Dimming etc.
Patented CSD algorithm for robust immunity to conducted and radiated noise
The CapSense Express with SmartSense demo video walks viewers through the features of Cypress's CapSense® Express™ technology, including SmartSense™ which automatically tunes touch-sensing "buttons" when capacitance is changed. No software or firmware development is required.This is an ideal starting point for first time users of CapSense products
