Holtek is delighted to announce the release of its new Enhanced Touch A/D Flash MCU, the BS66F360C. This new device provides 28 touch keys and has excellent noise immunity. The device has integrated the latest enhanced Touch Key Engine and superior Touch Key algorithms for increased execution efficiency. Its high program capacity and rich system resources make the device suitable for production applications which require additional numbers of touch keys, temperature detection and LED display, such as electric heating tables, food processers, rice cookers etc.
The device can resist a wide range of noise interference, such as power supply noise, RF interference, power supply fluctuations, and has passed the CS (Conductive Susceptibility) 10V dynamic testing. The integrated A/D converter provides 8 input channels and the internal LED driver can drive currents up to 100mA for LED illumination. As for external communication, the device includes SPI, I2C and UART interfaces and with its integrated 128×8 EEPROM, the device can directly store application parameters. With Holtek's In-Application program technology, users have a convenient means with which to directly store their measured data in Flash Program Memory as well as having the ability to update their application programs. The device is supplied in both 44-pin and 48-pin LQFP package types and as they are fully compatible with the BS66F360, direct replacement is possible without the need for a new PCB.
The device is suitable to be a master MCU, which together with a suitable power board can implement application products. Holtek provides a development system which includes a full suite of software and hardware functions. Holtek also provides a comprehensive set of touch function firmware libraries, enabling users to get started with touch functions extremely quickly. The hardware development tool is known as the e-Link which works together with an OCDS (On Chip Debug Support) architecture MCU, which provides users with a means of rapid development and simulation.
