QT1080 charge-transfer (’QT’) QTouch IC is a self-contained digital controller capable of detecting near-proximity or touch on
up to eight electrodes. It allows electrodes to project independent sense fields through any dielectric such as glass or
plastic. This capability coupled with its continuous self-calibration feature can lead to entirely new product concepts, adding
high value to product designs. The devices are designed specifically for human interfaces, like control panels, appliances,
gaming devices, lighting controls, or anywhere a mechanical switch or button may be found; they may also be used for some
material sensing and control applications.
Each of the channels operates independently of the others, and each can be tuned for a unique sensitivity level by simply
changing a corresponding external Cs capacitor.
AKS™ Adjacent Key Suppression (patent pending) suppresses touch from weaker responding keys and only allows a
dominant key to detect; for example to solve the problem of large fingers on tightly spaced keys.
Spread-spectrum burst technology provides superior noise rejection. These devices also have a SYNC/LP pin which allows for
synchronization with additional similar parts and/or to an external source to suppress interference, or, a Low Power (LP) mode
which conserves power.
By using the charge-transfer principle, this device delivers a level of performance clearly superior to older technologies yet is
This part is available in both 32-QFN and 48-SSOP RoHS compliant packages.
