New family of maXTouch touchscreen controllers designed for large screen automotive HMI designs
A new family of maXTouch touchscreen controllers is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. The MXT1665T-A family of automotive qualified touchscreen controllers is designed for large screen automotive human machine interface (HMI) designs. The technology provides the user experience of multitouch HMI, just as on a mobile phone, to car drivers and passengers in screen sizes from 20cm to 38cm. The MXT1665T-A family carries Microchip’s adaptive touch technology that uses self-capacitive touch as well as mutual capacitive touch scanning. This combination provides the multi-touch experience even with thick cover lenses, thick gloves or in the presence of moisture and water. The product family is AEC Q100 qualified to address all the unique needs of automotive system designs, and complements the very successful MXT641T-A family of products. It shares many of the same features developed for the automotive industry, but is able to address larger screen sizes of over 25cm. The MXT1665T-A family also supports smaller multifinger pinch separation.
