An easy approach to develop 3D gesturing systems

November 27th, 2013, Published in Articles: EngineerIT

Microchip announces the new MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit for 3D gesturing systems.  The kit provides designers with an easy step-by-step approach to develop 3D gesturing systems with Microchip’s MGC3130 and electrodes that meet their specific space requirements, and is the first single-chip 3D gesture/free space position tracking solution. It is a complete reference system consisting of an MGC3130 module and one example reference electrode.  With several additional reference electrode designs, the Aurea Graphical User Interface Software, and an I2C-to-USB Bridge Module, the kit enables easy design-in of the MGC3130 into several different form factors. The GestIC Technology enabled with the MGC3130  serves a wide range of applications in computing, such as laptops, keyboards, input devices; lighting applications including lighting switches and controls; consumer electronics such as audio docks, printers and copiers; and automotive markets for automotive interior controls, among others. The Hillstar Development Kit provides designers with the path to integrate Microchip’s industry-leading technology in their applications in the shortest possible time.
