Device Support
The following table represents a list of devices supported by the QTouch Configurator and the maximum number of self-capacitance and mutual capacitance buttons supported for each device.

device-support-2p0.png

Note: The maximum number of self-capacitance buttons and mutual capacitance buttons is derived based on QTouch Modular Library RAM requirements.
Note: The PTC lines can be multiplexed to be used as either X or Y lines. This is considered when deriving the maximum number of mutual capacitance buttons.

New Features

  • Slider and Wheel.
  • Driven shield without dedicated pin support.
  • Frequency Hop without Auto tune support.

Known Issues & Limitations
  • For ATtiny81x devices, QTouch Configurator project export of only IAR Embedded Workbench is supported.
  • For ATtiny81x devices, when using Slider/Wheel sensors using QTouch Configurator, both Frequency Hop and Data Visualizer features cannot be enabled together in a project - this will result in code memory overflow. Either one of the features should be disabled for the touch example project to fit within device code memory.
  • For ATtiny161x devices, PB4 (Y13/X13) CAN be used as PTC X or Y line pin. However, this is NOT visible through the QTouch Configurator.
  • Following devices are NOT supported in start.atmel.com.
    1. ATtiny1614-SSNR, ATtiny1614-SSFR – SOIC
    2. ATtiny1616-MNR, ATtiny1616-MFR – QFN (ATtiny1616 SOIC package is supported)

    Contact Design Support if a QTouch® project is required for these devices.
