TME offers PIC microcontrollers with an in-built mTouch sensing oscillator module for applications in the medical, industrial and automotive industries.

Mechanical microswitches used commonly in electronic equipment are being increasingly replaced by touch sensors.

MTouch technology has been developed by Microchip and is targeted at design engineers designing equipment that utilises touch sensors.

It is described as a complete solution based on PIC microcontrollers and used to support capacitive and inductive sensors.

The sensors, due to their parameters, should be selected according to individual applications.

For example, sensors operating in high-humidity environments or metal sensors (anti-vandal) should be realised with the use of inductive sensors, whereas sensors on glass or plastic should be realised with the use of capacitive sensors.

MTouch includes a variety of exemplary procedures that design engineers can take as models during creating their own programmes.

Ready-to-use libraries can be incorporated in the programme using the drag-and-drop method.

The TME offer includes, among others, PIC16F726 and PIC16F727 microcontrollers as well as the PIC18F87J90 microcontrollers equipped with capacitive sensing modules, which allows them to detect changes in capacity of the touch sensor placed directly on the PCB.

Each change triggers a returning of the module inner generator, which takes place on touching the sensor.

The module is equipped with an analogue multiplexer allowing for simultaneous operation of many sensors.

It can be synchronised to the microcontroller system clock and continues to run during sleep.

Transfer Multisort Elektronik

The Transfer Multisort Elektronik Company was created in 1990 as a little shop run by the family and dedicated to sales of a wide assortment of electronic elements for service and small production purposes. Two years later, we took up the mail-order sale of components. We also started delivering catalogues providing information about products in our offer, which was the innovative practice in these times.

Now TME is the biggest electronic components distributor in central and eastern Europe. We supply several thousands of companies in more than 50 countries and we send almost 2,000 packages a day. Among offered products you will find goods of the majority of significant electronic components producers.

Our staff includes several dozen engineers specialised in the field of electronics and electromechanics, as well as automation consultants ready to support you.
