Keywords:TI application note? capacitive touch sensors?

This TI application note discusses the design of RC-type capacitive single-touch sensors using the MSP430 MCU. The MSP430 has some unique features that make it suitable for interfacing with capacitive touch sensors. The RC-type method does not need special peripherals and can be implemented with all devices in the MSP430 product family. This method is also inherently low power and can provide very low power implementations.

This application report includes guidelines for use when implementing capacitive sensors in products.
