Future Electronics Helps Developers of Touch-Sensing Designs with Free Cypress CapSense® Evaluation Kits

MBR3-Kit_FinalEgham, UK – 26 June, 2014 – Broadline technical distributor Future Electronics today announced that it is making the latest capacitive sensing evaluation kit from Cypress Semiconductor available free to design engineers on its ‘My Board Club’ website.

The CY3280-MBR3 CapSense® MBR3 Evaluation Kit helps designers to evaluate the third generation of Cypress Semiconductor’s capacitive-sensing technology. It can be used to develop CapSense button designs, and to implement proximity sensing.

The CapSense MBR3 devices are register-configurable, and require no firmware development on the part of the system designer. The devices and the kit use the EZ-Click™ software tool to configure capacitive sensing features.

The CapSense MBR3 solution also supports Cypress’s industry-leading SmartSense™ Auto-tuning technology, which reduces design effort by eliminating manual tuning for variations in PCB, overlay, paint and manufacturing. The kit can be used to easily evaluate the advantages of SmartSense Auto-tuning.

The kit also demonstrates the water tolerance of the CapSense MBR3 devices. The MBR3 ICs retain CapSense functionality in the presence of water droplets, streaming water and mist. Included in each MBR3 Evaluation Kit is a dropper for users to place water on the plastic overlays, enabling them to evaluate the water tolerance of the MBR3 device.

The kit’s board also includes a proximity loop which can detect the presence of a finger or hand up to 30cm away.

The CY3280-MBR3 CapSense MBR3 Evaluation Kit works as a standalone kit as well as an Arduino-compatible shield. The kit can be used to easily add a capacitive-button user interface to your Arduino projects.

The new MBR3 kit is available to members of the FTM Board Club (at www.my-boardclub.com), a website provided by Future Electronics (EMEA) to offer OEM engineers easy access to free evaluation, development and prototyping boards. Any OEM engineer starting development of a new or substantially enhanced product design may apply for a free development board at the FTM Board Club.

Stephen Carr, Vice-President (Technical and Vertical) of Future Electronics, said: ‘The new CapSense MBR3 evaluation kit is a brilliant tool for prototyping and developing capacitive sensing products. I’m delighted that it is now available free from Future Electronics, which has many years of experience of supporting engineers with their touch-sensing designs.’

To apply for the MBR3 kit, go to www.my-boardclub.com and enter the Fast Track code PRC46A.

Future Electronics Releases etech ALERT Featuring the CapSense Solution from Cypress

Montreal, Canada – June 25, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, releases an etech ALERT featuring the CapSense Solution from Cypress.

Cypress has raised the bar for capacitive touch sensing, with new easy-to-use CapSense controllers, available now from Future Electronics.

These low cost devices require no coding, enabling designers to quickly implement sleek, reliable user interfaces, and delivering best-in-class noise immunity, proximity sensing and water tolerance.

The CY8CMBR3x controllers are part of Cypress’s Mechanical Button Replacement (MBR) family, which leverages Cypress’s SmartSense™ Auto-tuning algorithm to completely eliminate the requirement for manual system tuning. SmartSense Auto-tuning enables automatic tuning of more than 10 parameters to achieve optimal touch sensing performance. The CY8CMBR3x devices are supported by Cypress’ EZ-Click™ software tool, which combines GUI-based configuration, product debug and production-line testing with no firmware development required. The CY3280-MBR3 kit allows engineers to evaluate the family’s advanced features. The kit also provides additional debug and test options, including the ability to vary trace lengths, add parasitic capacitance and change overlay thickness.

“With more than 1 billion CapSense controllers shipped and 5 billion mechanical buttons replaced, our customers know they can count on Cypress for powerful capacitive-sensing solutions with advanced performance and features that are easy to design in,” said John Weil, senior director of marketing and applications for PSoC and CapSense at Cypress. “Our new CY8CMBR3x controllers redefine capacitive sensing. Customers no longer have to make a choice between cost and performance, but instead can use low-cost devices with advanced features and proven reliability from the market leader.”

The CY8CMBR3x controllers are ideal for applications in a broad range of markets, including consumer, automotive, home appliance, industrial, medical and fitness. The controllers can implement up to 16 capacitive buttons or up to 8 capacitive buttons while driving 8 LEDs. Designers can leverage the devices to add up to two proximity sensors with a 30-cm sensing distance for wake-on-approach applications. Additionally, the CY8CMBR3x controllers feature Flanking Sensor Suppression (FSS) that eliminates false touches when buttons are closely spaced.

Devices in the CapSense MBR family deliver robust sensing in noisy environments using Cypress’s patented CapSense Sigma-Delta (CSD) sensing method, ensuring superior immunity to conducted and radiated noise with a signal-to-noise ratio of greater than 100:1. Operating from 1.71V to 5.5V, the devices are ideal for a wide range of regulated and unregulated battery applications, including single coin cell battery operation. The controllers also feature an integrated voltage regulator to address power supply noise, as well as filters for any spurious noise.

The CapSense portfolio, the industry’s broadest and most integrated, enhances industrial design and reliability with the most noise-immune and water tolerant capacitive touch-sensing interfaces, including proximity sensing where direct touch is not required. CapSense proximity sensing can provide power savings by activating an interface only when needed while further enhancing industrial designs by only exposing interfaces when necessary.
