Cypress’s CapSense® is the industry-leading capacitive touch-sensing technology that is used to design user interfaces that Just Work™ in noisy environments and in the presence of liquids. Cypress’s CapSense solution supports both self-capacitive and mutual-capacitive touch-sensing methods and simplifies the design of even the most complex capacitive touch-sensing solutions.

Workshop Objectives:
By the end of this workshop, you will:

  • Understand Cypress’s CapSense touch-sensing solution
  • Learn how to use Cypress’s development environment, to implement: 
    • Basic and advanced CapSense solutions
    • Liquid-Tolerant CapSense solutions
    • Low-power CapSense solutions
    • Custom CapSense solutions
