The MAX11855/MAX11856 high-sensitivity, low-power, mutual-capacitance touch-screen controllers target power-sensitive applications such as handheld devices. The devices return sets of location (X, Y) and pressure metric (Z) data to support two-finger touches, up to four-finger touches for the MAX11855, with no ghosting.
The devices can operate stand-alone or in conjunction with Maxim’s haptic controllers for a near zero-latency touch and haptics solution. Background calibration allows for cancellation of environmental changes. Background calibration occurs continuously and does not affect user operation. The devices also feature a dedicated input for suppression of high noise events from cell phone transmit bursts and LCD switching events.
The MAX11855/MAX11856 support applications with two or three available power supplies for analog and digital blocks. The digital supply (DVDD) range is 1.7V to 1.9V, the analog supply (AVDD) range is 2.7V to 3.6V, and the digital I/O supply (DVDDIO) range is VDVDD to 1.9V.
Minimal external component count is needed to implement a complete touch solution. A typical single-chip solution consists of three bypass capacitors.
The MAX11856 is available in a 48-pin TQFN package and the MAX11855 is available in a 40-pin TQFN package. All devices are specified over the -40°C to +85°C extended temperature range.
