Sensing MCUs Address Heavy Metal Industrial Designs

Cypress Semiconductor’s PSoC 4700 series of microcontrollers (MCUs) employ inductive sensing to detect touch inputs for products using metal surfaces. Consumer, industrial, and automotive products are using metallic materials to differentiate with their customers through improved aesthetics. The new series frees developers to incorporate these metals by making inductive sensing as easy to use as Cypress’ industry-leading CapSense solutions for capacitive-sensing. By empowering developers to solve their capacitive and inductive sensing problems, the PSoC 4700 series is the ideal choice for modern, state-of-the-art industrial design.

 

The PSoC 4700 inductive sensing solution is supported in Cypress’ PSoC Creator™ Integrated Design Environment (IDE), which allows users to drag and drop production-ready hardware blocks, including the new inductive sensing capability, into a design and easily configure them via a simple graphical user interface. For more information, peruse the PSoC 4700 series, datasheet.
