Capacitive Touch (mTouch)

Postby hyperion007 » Fri Feb 27, 2015 3:59 pm

I have never tried my hand at capacitive touch buttons but I thought I would the other day, only to find a message when compiling that ADC touch wasn't supported or some such :(

As usual I was using the PIC18F26K80 and according to its datasheet it supports Microchip's mTouch functions. Would this be easy to implement as a component in FC?

It would be a very useful tool when designing something very thin and compact where a physical button simply isn't possible.

Thanks, I had not seen that post. It had a lot of good information that should help me get it to work (hopefully :) )

I downloaded all of your three example files and will go through them over the weekend. It will be good practice as I need to get going on improving my C skills :)

Your welcome,
and I hope the flowcharts help as well.
Let me know if you get a bit stuck.
I'm not an expert on it, but if I can help I will
