The cost of industry grade panel push buttons is really high and it gets worse as the buttons become environment proof. With that said, Capacitive Touch sensing has come in to replace mechanical buttons and the Cypress CapSense MBR3 does exactly that. The solution is a single chip auto calibration system which does most things for you. Most Capacitive Touch sensing solutions offered need a lot of technical expertise but Cypress claims that their solution is just easier to use. I will be reviewing the developer side of the solution as opposed to the kit itself. Continue reading “CapSense MBR3 Evaluation Kit – Review”
