It offers up to 300 channels using the ProxSense™ charge-transfer capacitive acquisition principle.
The hardware peripheral combines advanced analog and digital processing to measure the electrode capacitance with no CPU load.
The fast projected capacitive acquisition minimizes the use of external components for a robust multiplexing of channels using a matrix of up to 15 Tx and 20 Rx.
We asked Christophe the following questions: - How is ST engaged in the 8-bit MCU market ? - What benefits does the STM8 bring? - What applications are suitable for STM8 (no change) - What kind of ecosystem does STM8 have?
