CapSense for Automotive non-infotainment applications | Cypress Semiconductor
When designing capacitive touch sense technology into automotive, one needs to keep in mind that the CapSense device exists within a larger framework. Careful attention to every level of detail from PCB layout to user interface to end-use operating environment will lead to robust and reliable system performance. For more in-depth information, refer Getting Started with CapSense.
AN2397 shows how to monitor data from any Cypress CapSense® controller using the I2C or UART interface. With the tools described in this application note, you can view and log real-time sensor data for CapSense tuning and debugging.
AN59389 Application note explains how to use and port the HSSP code example, provided along with this application note, host processor for programming the CY8C20xx6A, CY8C20xx6AS, CY8C20xx6L and CY8C20xx7.
The CY3280-BSM Simple Button Module Kit is designed to work with any CY3280 Universal CapSense Controller Board, such as the latest CY3280-20x66 DVK.
The CY8CKIT-001 PSoC® Development Kit (DVK) provides a common development platform where you can prototype and evaluate different solutions using any one of the PSoC 1, PSoC 3, PSoC 4, or PSoC 5 architectures.
The CY8CKIT-030 PSoC® 3 Development Kit enables you to evaluate, develop and prototype high precision analog, low-power and low-voltage applications powered by Cypress’s CY8C38 high precision analog device family.
The CY8CKIT-031 PSoC® CapSense® Expansion Board Kit enables you to develop CapSense solutions with PSoC 3 and PSoC 5 devices.
The CY8CKIT-050 PSoC® 5LP Development Kit enables you to evaluate, develop and prototype high precision analog, low-power and low-voltage applicati
Cypress's PSoC-based CapSense technology provides a flexible, efficient means for implementing highly differentiated and reliable capacitive sensing & proximity detection. CapSense allows for “cool” designs by replacing mechanical buttons with a sleeker, more refined interface for various applications in automotive including non- infotainment systems inside the car. Our devices also come equipped with industry standard protocols like LIN which make acceptance of these devices into automotive all the more easier.
As market leader, Cypress makes it easy for designers to merge new features with pre-existing mechanical platforms for functionality enhancement and vastly improved touch based interfaces.
Our fully programmable CapSensing solution means full flexibility for the designers and the GUI that comes with our devices guarantees ease of development.
Cypress Capacitive solutions ensure:
- Superior noise immunity and low radiated noise,
- Best in class CapSense performance with superior water proofing(on CSD),
- Ease of development and full programmability,
- Enabling integration through additional analog and digital peripherals on the same chip.
Typical applications include (but not limited to):
Sunroof control, Key fob, Doors and windows control, Side mirror control, Keyed entry systems, dome light of the car
