MICROCHIP 3D Gesture Development Kit for Flick (DM160218)
Want to start development on our range of Flick 3D Gesture Sensor Boards for a custom application? The DM160218 Hillstar development kit is designed to support an easy integration of MGC3130 3D tracking and gesture controller into your own project!
The MGC3130 is the first product based on GestIC technology, developed as a mixed signal controller. The MGC3130 has one transmit and five very sensitive receive channels that are capable of detecting changes of a transmitted electrical field (E-field) corresponding to capacitive changes in the femtofarad (1 fF = 10-15F) range. In order to transmit and receive an electrical field, electrodes have to be connected to the transmitting and receiving channels of the MGC3130 controller.
This development kit provides an artificial test hand, further called hand brick, helping to stimulate the human hand operating the GestIC application. The hand brick has to be used during the design in process to parametrize and evaluate customer's applications.
