Freescale CRTOUCH Xtrinsic Touch-Sensing Platform is the industry's first solution that combines 4- and 5-wire resistive screen controller with basic gesture recognition and up to four capacitive touch sensing electrodes, all encompassed in a single IC. This Freescale touch-sensing platform provides all the signal interfacing and processing to calculate X and Y coordinates as well as to detect and process two touch gestures for human-machine interface applications. CRTOUCH allows the implementation of technologies reducing space, software development cost, and time to market.

Freescale EVBCRTOUCH Touch Sensing Platform Eval Board

Freescale EVBCRTOUCH Touch Sensing Platform Evaluation Board is a low cost development board that allows quick connection between any standard 4- and 5-wire resistive screen. This Freescale evaluation board also features four capacitive electrodes, enabling a quick ramp up. The EVBCRTOUCH board also provides a USB to Serial bridge to allow a connection to any host Processor or PC via USB. The integrated CRTOUCH resistive touch screen controller enables 4-wire resistive touch screens to handle basic gesture recognition. CRTOUCH also allows the addition of up to 4 capacitive electrodes to your system. It supports 4-wire and 5-wire touch screens and communicates over UART and IIC communication protocols.
