Microchip’s PIC32 GUI Dev Board aces cost-effective multitouch displaysThe PIC32 GUI Development Board With Projected Capacitive Touch (part # DM320015) from Microchip Technology Inc. makes it easy to add multitouch projected-capacitive interfaces and high-quality 16-bit color graphics to WQVGA displays in any application. Microchip’s 32-bit PIC32 microcontroller can directly drive LCDs, eliminating the cost and complexity of an external graphics controller. Microchip’s onboard MTCH6301 is a turnkey projected-capacitive touch controller that simplifies the integration of popular multi-touch and gestures with greatly reduced design time and risk.
The PIC32 GUI Development Board With Projected Capacitive Touch enables bezel mounting and connections between LCD displays and most of the PIC32’s on-chip peripherals. The board also provides ready-to-use PCB pads for common serial and analog connections. Additionally, the PIC32 has processing power to spare for additional tasks, such as communication, control and audio.
