Infineon launches PSoC 4000T MCUs
Infineon has announced the PSoC 4000T family of microcontrollers (MCUs) a low power usage MCU for multi-sense applications.
This new MCU family delivers best-in-class low-power capacitive sensing solution with excellent signal-to-noise ratio, liquid tolerance, and multi-sense capabilities coupled with highest reliability and robustness.
PSoC 4000T MCUs expand the PSoC 4 product family of Arm Cortex-M0+ based MCUs, featuring Infineon’s fifth generation high-performance CAPSENSE capacitive sensing technology. The current technology generation provides ten times higher SNR (signal-to-noise ratio) performance and ten times lower power consumption than previous generations and competing solutions.
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 utilize a wide range of sensing support from the PSoC 4000T, including proximity, humidity, temperature, and ambient light sensing. The fifth generation CAPSENSE technology enables interactive user interfaces for applications using proximity gestures, capacitive sliders, capacitive trackpads, small size touchscreens, wear detection, and liquid level sensing.
“At Infineon, we are committed to providing innovative and cutting-edge technologies that meet the evolving needs of our customers,” said Steven Tateosian, Senior Vice President, IoT, Compute and Wireless Business Unit of Infineon. “The PSoC 4000T including our fifth generation CAPSENSE technology represents a significant leap forward in the evolution of human-machine interfaces and sets a new standard in the industry.”
