Microchip MGC3130 3D Tracking and Gesture Controller is the first electrical-field (E-field) based three-dimensional (3D) tracking and gesture controller. The chip is based on Microchip GestIC® technology and enables user command input with natural hand and finger movements in free space. Microchip’s on-chip Colibri Suite minimizes processing needs, reduces system power consumption, and speeds development time. Microchip MGC3130 provides gesture information as well as positional data of the human hand in real time, allowing for the realization of a new generation of user interfaces across various industries. Configurable sensing states provide for mobile-friendly power consumption as low as 150 microwatts.


Key Features
  • Recognition of 3D hand gestures and x/y/z positional data
  • High resolution of up to 150 dpi
  • Integrated digital signal processing unit
  • Low noise analog front end
  • Frequency hopping against noise
  • Digital interface
  • On-chip Colibri gesture suite

GestIC® Technology Benefits
  • Very low power design
  • From 0 (touch) to 15cm detection range
  • No detection blind spots
  • Usage of thin, low-cost sensing electrodes
GestIC® Technology Benefits (Continued)
  • Electrodes hidden behind housing
  • No ambient influences (light/sound)
  • High sensitivity
  • 70-130kHz carrier frequency – no RF interference

Applications
  • Notebooks/Keyboards/PC Peripherals
  • Mobile phones
  • Tablet computers
  • Electronic readers
  • Remote controls
  • Game controllers
  • Light Switches
  • Air condition control
