Embarking as the second member of the GestIC gesture controller family, the MGC3030 3D features simplified user-interface options focused on gesture detection, enabling true one-step design-in of 3D gesture recognition in consumer and embedded devices. Housed in an SSOP28 package, an on-chip 32-bit digital signal processor executes real-time gesture processing, eliminating the need for external cameras or controllers for host processing, and allowing for faster and more natural user interaction with devices. Gesture-detection integration is also achieved through the company’s free, downloadable AUREA graphical user interface (GUI) and configurable general purpose IO ports that allow for host MCU/processor-free usage. In terms of development support, the DM160226 development kit comes with the AUREA Graphical User Interface, the central tool to parameterize the MGC3030 and the Colibri Suite to suit the needs of any design. Pricing for the MGC3030 is under $2 each in high volumes. A datasheet is available at http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/40001667D.pdf
