Microchip’s new capacitive touch controllers offer improved proximity performance

Microchip's CAP12XX capacitive touch controllers provide a wide variety of slider, button and proximity functionality. The new controllers, part of the CAP11XX RightTouch product portfolio, make it easy for designers to add aesthetically pleasing, low-cost touch interfaces.  This six-member family is available in 8- to 16-pin packages.
