Touch International Announces New TI RoHS Capacitive Controller Board

Austin, TX – June 07, 2006 – Touch International proudly offers the newly available TI RoHS Capacitive Controller Board. RoHS is often referred to as the “Lead-free” directive, which was adopted by the European Union in 2003. Not only does the ROHS directive restrict the use of Lead, but also Mercury, Cadmium, Chromium VI, PBB, and PBDE.

Possible applications for the TI RoHS Controller Board include gaming, home entertainment, automobile accessories, amusement, GPS devices, and more! The TI RoHS Controller operates using an innovative technique which combines both analog and digital ground to one source, making the touch points accurate, fast, and very stable. Our new TI RoHS Controller is the only board available which may be configured by the user for RS-232 or USB (HID compliant) communication. It can use regulated or unregulated power from +5VDC to +16VDC, with typical current 80mA. TI Capacitive drivers are developed to support Microsoft Windows (including DOS), and Linux operating systems.
