Overview

The CapTIvate™ Design Center GUI is a one-stop resource for everything related to CapTIvate capacitive sensing technology integrated on TI MSP430™ microcontrollers. It includes tools, documentation and software examples that can simplify and accelerate capacitive touch designs. Start by dragging and dropping capacitive sensing elements (i.e. buttons, sliders, wheels and proximity sensors) to your GUI workspace and use the GUI to configure and tune your design in real time. When tuning is complete, the GUI will generate the source code needed for the selected capacitive touch elements.

Features
  • Set up a design in less than five minutes
  • Create, configure and tune capacitive sensors without writing a single line of code
  • Automatically generate source code projects for code composer studio™ and IAR Embedded Workbench® IDEs
  • Support for slider, wheel, buttons and proximity sensors
  • Real time target communication through a HID communication bridge enabling:
    • A detailed view of sensor data
    • Configuration and tuning of sensor performance
  • Works with:
    • Windows 7+ operating system with Java version 1.6+
    • Apple OS X 10.10.1+ with Java version 1.7+
    • Linux OS with Java version 1.6+
