Create capacitive touch designs with TI's expanded ecosystem of ultra-low power MSP430 MCUs

USA: Expanding the industry's lowest-powered capacitive touch portfolio, Texas Instruments Inc. (TI) announced a new software library, sensor tuning GUI, design collateral and support for additional microcontrollers (MCU) to ease development of capacitive touch solutions.

With ultra-low power operation at less than 1uA average current per button, TI's MSP430 MCUs are the industry's best choice for capacitive touch button, slider, wheel and proximity applications, including portable electronics, household appliances, and accessories.

TI's open source MSP430 Capacitive Touch Software Library now allows developers to use the recently announced MSP430G2xx5 Value Line devices and Wolverine MSP430FR58xx/FR59xx devices for button, slider, wheel and proximity capacitive touch applications. These new devices provide engineers with more options for cost-conscious and low-power applications with capacitive touch.

TI's expanded capacitive touch ecosystem now includes advanced tools to help designers throughout the development process.
