Infineon Sensing Technologies - robust, intelligent, easy-to-use touch sensing solutions
Infineon's cutting-edge touch sensing technologies have enabled Infineon to be the market leader in capacitive- and inductive-sensing applications. With industry-leading CAPSENSE™ capacitive-sensing and MagSense inductive-sensing, we provides sensing solutions that "just work" and deliver the robustness and intelligence that consumer, industrial, automotive, and Internet of Things (IoT) applications demand.
Inductive-sensing supports applications that require metal detection or micrometer measurements of metal deflection. Applications that require detection through high-quality metal overlays, water-proofing, rotary and linear encoder functionality, and proximity sensing can leverage this technology.
CAPSENSE™ capacitive-sensing supports applications that require touch buttons, sliders, wheels, trackpads, and touchscreens. It delivers features such as proximity sensing, hover and glove touch, liquid tolerance, and advanced sensing techniques like liquid-level sensing. In addition, CAPSENSE™ provides intelligent algorithms that compensate for environmental and manufacturing variations.
An Integrated Design Environment (IDE) that enables concurrent hardware and firmware editing, compiling and debugging of PSoC 3, PSoC 4,and PSoC 5 MCUs. Applications are created using schematic capture and over 150 pre-certified, production-ready peripheral Components. More information is available here.
ModusToolbox® is a collection of easy-to-use software and tools enabling rapid development of Infineon MCUs, covering applications from embedded sense and control to wireless and cloud-connected systems using AIROC™ Wi-Fi, AIROC™ Bluetooth® and AIROC™ Wi-Fi and Combo devices.
A powerful software tool that enables development of CapSense® MBR3 solutions. This lightweight Windows® GUI-based tool has been improved to make development of capacitive user-interfaces extremely simple and quick. The tool allows you to setup sensor configuration, apply global system properties, monitor real-time sensor output, and run production-line system diagnostics – all in an intuitive, visually-driven tool, with absolutely no firmware development required!
