The MAX11800–MAX11803 low-power touch-screen controllers operate from a single supply of 1.70V to 3.6V, targeting power-sensitive applications such as handheld equipment. The devices contain a 12-bit SAR ADC and a multiplexer to interface with a resistive touch-screen panel. A digital serial interface provides communications.
The MAX11800–MAX11803 include digital preprocessing of the touch-screen measurements, reducing bus loading and application-processor resource requirements. The included smart interrupt function generator greatly reduces the frequency of interrupt servicing to the devices. The MAX11800–MAX11803 enter low-power modes automatically between conversions to save power, making the devices ideal for portable applications.
The MAX11800/MAX11801 offer two modes of operation: direct and autonomous. Direct mode allows the application processor to control all touch-screen controller activity. Autonomous mode allows the MAX11800/MAX11801 to control touch-screen activity, thereby freeing the application processor to perform other functions. In autonomous mode, the devices periodically scan the touch screen for touch events without requiring host-processor intervention. This can be used to reduce system power consumption. An on-chip FIFO is used during autonomous mode to store results, increasing effective data throughput and lower system power.
The MAX11800–MAX11803 support data-tagging, which records the type of measurement performed; X, Y, Z1, or Z2, and the type of touch event; initial touch, continuing touch, or touch release.
The MAX11800/MAX11802 support the SPI™ serial bus. The MAX11801/MAX11803 support the I²C serial bus. The MAX11800–MAX11803 are available in 12-pin TQFN and 12-pin WLP packages, and are specified over the -40°C to +85°C (extended) and -40°C to +105°C (automotive) temperature ranges.
