Future Electronics Announces Availability of Xtrinsic Touch Sensing Software 2.6 from Freescale

25-Apr-2012 | News-Press Release

Montreal, Canada ( prsafe ) April 19, 2012 - Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce immediate availability of Xtrinsic touch sensing software 2.6., offering highly accurate touch detection for Freescale microcontrollers in consumer, industrial and medical applications.

Freescale Semiconductor continues making touch sensing application development easier and faster with its touch sensing software, adding touch functionality to Freescale microcontrollers. The latest version, TSS 2.6, adds robustness and support for an S08 8 bit microcontrollers and two 90 nanometer ColdFire+ and Kinetis 32 bit MCU families.

Freescale's MCU-based TSS 2.6 is complimentary licensed software that enables customers to incorporate human machine interfaces (HMIs) into next-generation designs without increasing system cost. The TSS 2.6 addition to the Xtrinsic sensing portfolio allows integration of touch sensing capabilities for consumer electronics, multimedia Internet devices, medical and industrial equipment and home appliances.

Advantages of TSS 2.6 include a touch detection algorithm for reduced false touches with electrical noise, greater flexibility for product designers to select from more than 1,000 MCUs within Freescale's broad 8-bit to 32 bit microcontroller portfolio, and reliable touch detection using the touch sensing input (TSI) module provides extremely high sensitivity. Reliability is enhanced by replacing mechanical button wear and tear, which increases device longevity.

This is a modern upgrade from mechanical to touch-activated push-button, slider and rotary user interfaces; it is flexible, low maintenance and supports a variety of sensitivity levels and overlay surfaces, while offering functionality in low-power modes, with wake-up via touch. It simplifies user interface designs, enabling customers to develop an application within minutes using a broad range of tools and demonstration software, while reducing overall system cost by simplifying mechanical design and assembly.

Xtrinsic touch sensing software 2.6 provides a cost-effective, comprehensive solution through complimentary software licenses and cost effective development tools.
