For several years, the Renesas MCU product portfolio has offered state-of-the-art capacitive touch interfaces for applications with buttons, sliders, wheels and more. Our experience and know-how in this area has enabled us to develop new IPs to adapt and improve our solutions. The new Renesas RA family embeds this latest technology, offering innovative features such as fast scan, and advancements in the areas of noise immunity, sensibility and accuracy.
Our technology is perfect for the design of more traditional touch-like buttons, wheels and sliders, but now designers can also embrace touchless control or material detection applications too! The COVID-19 pandemic has created a strong demand for ‘non-contact HMI' to avoid further contamination, and Renesas has developed multiple solutions to address this need.
Renesas Capacitive Touch technology can detect proximity, gestures and materials, for applications such as power switches or door-opening systems, and it's served by solutions that simplify design, lower cost and reduce effects from external noise sources, such as light.
