The AEC-Q100 compliant LC717A30UJ has a range of 150 millimeters (mm) – beyond the scope of any competing device on the market. This higher sensitivity enables gesture motions as well as offering conventional touch functionality, thereby enhancing users’ control options to address a wide range of application scenarios. In addition, it is capable of operating with an airgap between the sensor/PCB and the protective cover – so engineers can eliminate the inclusion of a light guide from the assembly reducing overall complexity.
This device also includes an integrated automatic calibration function which optimizes and self-calibrates total capacitance according to electrode, line capacitance, and surrounding environment, thus significantly accelerating system development cycle time as well as robustness in the field.
“Receiving this award from a leading publication serving the electronic engineering sector in China recognizes the industry-leading differentiated performance of this product as well as its market acceptance,” said Ryan Cameron, VP of Industrial and Offline Power Division at ON Semiconductor. “Touch technology is a rapidly growing area of application in many sectors and so the availability of high-performance, robust and easy-to-design-in integrated solutions such as the LC717A30UJ are vital to our customers.”
