PSoC 4000T has 10x higher SNR for multi-sense applications
The PSoC 4000T family of microcontrollers is claimed to delivers best-in-class low-power capacitive sensing with signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), liquid tolerance and multi-sense capabilities coupled with highest reliability and robustness.
PSoC 4000T microcontrollers are the latest members to PSoC 4 family of Arm Cortex-M0+ based microcontrollers and feature Infineon’s fifth generation high-performance CAPSENSE capacitive sensing technology. The technology provides 10 times higher SNR and 10 times lower power consumption than previous generations and competing solutions, claimed Infineon.
The PSoC 4000T features always-on touch sensing capability that enables human machine interface (HMI) operation with low active and standby power consumption to support longer battery life for battery-powered products. Designers can now use a wide range of sensing support from the PSoC 4000T, including proximity, humidity, temperature and ambient light sensing. CAPSENSE technology enables interactive user interfaces for applications using proximity gestures, capacitive sliders, capacitive trackpads, small size touchscreens, wear detection, and liquid level sensing.
The PSoC 4000T family provides an easy upgrade path for PSoC 4000- and PSoC 4000S-based designs to utilise the fifth generation CAPSENSE via software and package compatibility. PSoC 4000T series targets a variety of low-power applications including wearable, hearable, and smart connected IoT devices.
Infineon’s ModusToolbox software provides a collection of development tools, libraries and embedded runtime assets.
The PSoC 4000T is now available with 15 variants. To perfectly match customers’ needs the MCU can be ordered in SG-XFWLB-25, PG-USON16, and PG-VQFN-24 packages, with either 24 or 48MHz, 32 or 64kbyte flash and four- or eight-kbyte SRAM.
