Highly integrated capacitive-digital converter delivers superior gesture sensing and enhanced touch performance to automotive & industrial systems

ON Semiconductor, driving energy efficient innovations, has introduced a new touch/proximity sensing solution that combines industry-leading performance, cost effectiveness and convenience in a single chip. The LC717A30UJ high dynamic range capacitance-to-digital converter uses mutual capacitance to detect changes in capacitance down to femtofarad (fF) levels. Parasitic capacitance cancellation raises the detector sensitivity, while its built-in noise rejection mechanism combats the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI).

TILS 2017: CSP by Clouldriver Technology Co., Ltd

  Smart choice for product designers: Provide an adsorptive technology of powder with Flip Chip Led; the volume is under one tenth of traditional gold-wire bonding LED package. By the “free gold-wire bonding, high arranged density, low thermal resistance, high lumen efficiency“, pulled up the cost and performance. The appearance structure of product can be designed lighter, thinner, and narrower, resulting in greater economic benefits.        160 degrees high beam angle without yellow light spot and point light, suitable for thin light fixture and higher beam angle product applications. In the same lumen output, the small area can increase the optical density; offer a bigger power output in the same structure design, so many high optical density designers choose CSP program. Free gold wire, lead frame, and die bond dispensing process, highly reduce the thermal resistance than the traditional LED package, can be resistant to greater current, safety, reliability greatly enhance and wider for product applications.   Easy to standardized production or customized production, including optical integrated design. Through the new adsorptive technology of powder, the yield rate of the production is high up to 95%. We are the only one in the world had our own created R&D production machine, and which mass production our adsorptive technology of powder automatically in precision and a high-rated of yield process.
