The PSoC® 4 and PSoC 6 MCU CapSense® Design Guide shows how to design capacitive touch sensing applications with the PSoC 4, PSoC 6 families of devices.


The CapSense feature offers unprecedented signal-to-noise ratio, best-in-class liquid tolerance, and a wide variety of sensors such as buttons, sliders, trackpads and proximity sensors. This guide explains the CapSense operation, CapSense design tools, performance tuning of the PSoC Creator™ CapSense CSD Component and design considerations.

Cypress provides many different device families with the CapSense feature. If you have not chosen a particular device, or are new to Capacitive Sensing, refer to the Getting Started with CapSense Design Guide.
