Keywords:WirelessUSB  CapSense  Capacitive sensors 

This application note by Cypress describes the integration of the WirelessUSB and PSoC CapSense interface technologies into a wireless remote control with capacitive sensors. This implementation demonstrates a WirelessUSB two-way simple protocol, a mixed-signal PSoC device, and implementation of the capacitive switch design using the CSR user module in PsoC Designer. The proposed device can be used as a design starting point for the many popular wireless devices that markets demand today.

Capacitive sensors have advantages over traditional mechanical switches, including greater reliability and lower cost. Integration of the Cypress WirelessUSB and PsoC CapSense technologies into a wireless remote control with capacitive sensors combines all these advantages in a single device. The architecture of the PSoC allows this device to be built with external components kept to a minimum. The wireless remote control with capacitive sensors can be used as a remote control for various devices (TV sets, air-conditioners and similar home appliances), in distance-measuring equipment, medical systems and related devices.
