Cypress Semiconductor's CapSense is based on Programmable System-on-Chip (PSoC) mixed signal arrays. It allows designers to integrate multiple functions, such as LED drivers and LCD displays, in addition to touch sensing. The PSoC solution also delivers such benefits as easy serial communications and ability to do trackpad and linear-slide applications. For more information go to CapSense sensor.
