The MXT1665T-A family of automotive qualified touchscreen controllers is designed for large screen automotive human machine interface (HMI) designs. The technology brings the user experience of multi-touch HMI, such as on a mobile phone, to car drivers and passengers in screen sizes from eight to 15 inches.
MXT1665T-A family carries Microchip’s adaptive touch technology that utilises self-capacitive touch as well as mutual capacitive touch scanning.
