Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Microchip Technology Inc. has introduced a new line of maXTouch® touch screen controllers. The MXT1665T-A series of automotive-grade touchscreen controllers are specifically designed for automotive large-screen Human Machine Interface (HMI) applications. The new device gives car drivers and passengers the same user experience as a mobile multi-touch HMI for 8 to 15 inch screens.

The MXT1665T-A series features Microchip's adaptive touch technology with integrated self-capacitance touch and mutual capacitance touch scanning. The perfect combination of two capacitive touch technologies enables a great multi-touch experience even in thick covers, thick gloves or wet and wet conditions. This series is fully compliant with the AEC Q100 standard and meets all the unique needs of automotive system designers.

The MXT1665T is an "upgrade version" of the MXT641T-A series. Not only do they inherit the performance developed by previous generations for automotive applications, but they also offer new features for larger screens larger than 10 inches. The MXT1665T-A series supports 8 to 15 inch screen sizes while also recognizing fine multi-finger split touch operations.

According to Fanie Duvenhage, vice president of touch products at Microchip, "With the advent of the MXT1665T family, Microchip offers customers a comprehensive range of scalability, enabling them to design a rich user experience and interface design with a display size from small to large. Platform products. Consumers are increasingly demanding on-board capacitive touch solutions. Microchip is the only touch screen controller supplier that offers a broad, expanding range of automotive-grade products and offers a wide range of support services worldwide. ”

With the rich screen size options of Microchip's touchscreen controller family, customers can be more mobile when designing their products, which ultimately shortens the design cycle and reduces system and development costs.

The MXT1665T-A series is available in three devices, including the MXT1665T-A supporting 1664 touch node sensors, the MXT1189-A with 1188 touch node sensor, and the MXT799T-A with 798 touch node sensor.
