Cypress Semiconductor Corp. has introduced the Universal PSoC CapSense Controller Kit, a new kit designed for easy development and debugging of any CapSense design. It includes pre-defined control circuitry and plug-in hardware, along with controller boards for both the CY8C20x34 and CY8C21x34 PSoC devices. It also offers a breadboard module and a module for implementing up to five buttons and a slider with sample overlays to encompass a wide variety of designs.

The kit works with both PSoC Designer and PSoC Express, and allows for monitoring and tuning of CapSense designs via an I?C-to-USB bridge that is included in the kit. Cypress offers real-time monitoring and tuning, which can reduce development cycles. The kit supports both the CapSense Successive Approximation (CSA) and Sigma-Delta (CSD) capacitive sensing methods. CSA offers outstanding interference immunity and low power consumption, making it suitable for portable consumer applications. CSD delivers flawless operation in wet conditions, and offers superb temperature response, suitable for white goods and other moisture-sensitive systems.

"The modular approach of the Universal CapSense Controller Kit provides embedded designers with a tool for testing various industrial design concepts with Cypress CapSense products," said Steve Gerber, business unit director for Cypress's CapSense products.

The kit is available today from Cypress's On-Line store and through authorised distributors. It costs Rs.6237.59 ($158).
