Microchip Technology 3DTouchPad is the first USB PC peripheral device that integrates 3D air gesture technology and 2D multi-touch input technology on a single, plug-and-play device. The 3DTouchPad features 3D gesture recognition utilizing Microchip's patented GestIC® technology to offer a detection range of up to 10 cm, along with Microchip's highly responsive projected-capacitive 2D multi-touch solution supporting up to 10 touch points and multi-finger surface gestures. The design reinvents input sensing by adding free space gesture recognition to projected-capacitive multi-touch as an innovative development platform and reference design. A comprehensive SDK/API is available for application and driver development and a Graphical User Interface (GUI) allows users to assess performance. The capabilities of the 3DTouchPad, extend beyond the PC market and computer touch pads to include hands-free sanitary products, home automation, remote controls, game controllers, wearable devices, and automotive applications.
