Mobile POS reference platform slashes R&D costs

Maxim Integrated will debut the MPOS-STD2 Mobile Point of Sale (MPOS) reference platform at the Cartes exhibition in Paris (Nov 4-6). It means payment terminal providers can enable customers of all sizes and security expertise levels to address the emerging mobile payment market. Maxim cites significantly reduced R&D costs and faster time to market by rapidly moving through product design and PCI certification.

MCUs integrate two ADCs for capacitive-touch sensing

MCUs integrate two ADCs for capacitive-touch sensing
Expanding its PIC12/16LF155X 8-bit MCU family, Microchip has introduced the PIC16LF1554 and PIC16LF1559 devices. The MCUs integrate 100kSPS ADCs with hardware Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) support for capacitive-touch sensing. This enables more efficient sensor acquisition and helps advanced touch-sensing techniques for extremely noisy environments, low-power applications, matrix keypads and water-resistant designs.
