Cypress's newest line of CapSense® capacitive touch-sensing devices with low-power 1.8V operation extend battery life in handheld mobile consumer applications. The CY8C20xx6A devices replace mechanical buttons and sliders, offering attractive, functional interface options for designers. The new family also offers exceptional response time with the most precise scanning of any CapSense devices. With superior immunity to conducted and radiated noise, as well as robust waterproofing, the new devices also enable reliable touch-sensing operation in applications such as white goods, home appliances, printers, computers and TVs/monitors.

The CY8C20xx6A family offers the new patent-pending SmartSense™ solution, which automatically calibrates capacitive-sensing parameters during the design process, significantly cutting development time. The CY8C20xx6A devices have up to 36 general-purpose I/Os (GPIOs) to implement multiple CapSense interfaces. Leveraging the PSoC® programmable system-on-chip architecture, a single new CapSense device can also manage functions such as motor control, intelligent sensing, LED control and more – a capability called CapSense Plus™.  For a high-resolution image of the devices, click the download link below.
