In August 2011, Microchip Technology launched the mTouch AR1100 analogue resistive USB touchscreen controller, a high performance, USB plug-and-play device that offers advanced calibration capabilities as a USB mouse or single input digitiser.
Features and USP: The AR1100 controller is available as a turnkey chip or board product, supporting all 4-/5-/8 wire touchscreens, with free drivers for most major operating systems. It is an ideal solution for customers who want a drop-in touch controller to universally support their entire standard resistive touch portfolio. It also features advanced calibration options for alignment and linearisation, enabling superior accuracy for 4-, 5- and 8 wire touchscreens. The AR1100 controller is available today in 20-pin SOIC, SSOP and QFN packages in lots of 10,000 units. It is also available as a board product in production quantities. The mTouch AR1100 development kit includes an AR1100 production-ready PCB.
