Overview of the AT42QT1010
2.1
Introduction
The AT42QT1010 (QT1010) is a digital burst mode charge-transfer (QT™) sensor that is capable of detecting nearproximity or touch, making it ideal for implementing touch controls.
With the proper electrode and circuit design, the self-contained digital IC will project a touch or proximity field to
several centimeters through any dielectric like glass, plastic, stone, ceramic, and even most kinds of wood. It can
also turn small metal-bearing objects into intrinsic sensors, making them responsive to proximity or touch. This
capability, coupled with its ability to self-calibrate, can lead to entirely new product concepts.
The QT1010 is designed specifically for human interfaces, like control panels, appliances, toys, lighting controls, or
anywhere a mechanical switch or button may be found. It includes all hardware and signal processing functions
necessary to provide stable sensing under a wide variety of changing conditions. Only a single low-cost capacitor is
required for operation.
2.2
Basic Operation
Figure 1-1 on page 4 and Figure 1-2 on page 4 show basic circuits.
The QT1010 employs bursts of charge-transfer cycles to acquire its signal. Burst mode permits power consumption
in the microamp range, dramatically reduces RF emissions, lowers susceptibility to EMI, and yet permits excellent
response time. Internally the signals are digitally processed to reject impulse noise, using a “consensus” filter which
requires four consecutive confirmations of a detection before the output is activated.
The QT switches and charge measurement hardware functions are all internal to the QT1010.
2.3
Electrode Drive
For optimum noise immunity, the electrode should only be connected to SNSK.
In all cases the rule Cs >> Cx must be observed for proper operation; a typical load capacitance (Cx) ranges from
5 – 20 pF while Cs is usually about 2 – 50 nF.
Increasing amounts of Cx destroy gain, therefore it is important to limit the amount of stray capacitance on both SNS
terminals. This can be done, for example, by minimizing trace lengths and widths and keeping these traces away
from power or ground traces or copper pours.
The traces and any components associated with SNS and SNSK will become touch sensitive and should be treated
with caution to limit the touch area to the desired location.
A series resistor, Rs, should be placed in line with SNSK to the electrode to suppress ESD and EMC effects.
2.4
Sensitivity
2.4.1
Introduction
The sensitivity on the QT1010 is a function of things like the value of Cs, electrode size and capacitance, electrode
shape and orientation, the composition and aspect of the object to be sensed, the thickness and composition of any
overlaying panel material, and the degree of ground coupling of both sensor and object.
2.4.2
Increasing Sensitivity
In some cases it may be desirable to increase sensitivity; for example, when using the sensor with very thick panels
having a low dielectric constant, or when the device is used as a proximity sensor. Sensitivity can often be increased
by using a larger electrode or reducing panel thickness. Increasing electrode size can have diminishing returns, as
high values of Cx will reduce sensor gain.
AT42QT1010 [DATASHEET]
9541I–AT42–05/2013
5
The value of Cs also has a dramatic effect on sensitivity, and this can be increased in value with the trade-off of
slower response time and more power. Increasing the electrode's surface area will not substantially increase touch
sensitivity if its diameter is already much larger in surface area than the object being detected. Panel material can
also be changed to one having a higher dielectric constant, which will better help to propagate the field.
In the case of proximity detection, usually the object being detected is on an approaching hand, so a larger surface
area can be effective.
Ground planes around and under the electrode and its SNSK trace will cause high Cx loading and destroy gain. The
possible signal-to-noise ratio benefits of ground area are more than negated by the decreased gain from the circuit,
and so ground areas around electrodes are discouraged. Metal areas near the electrode will reduce the field strength
and increase Cx loading and should be avoided, if possible. Keep ground away from the electrodes and traces.
2.4.3
Decreasing Sensitivity
In some cases the QT1010 may be too sensitive. In this case gain can be easily lowered further by decreasing Cs.
2.4.4
Proximity Sensing
By increasing the sensitivity, the QT1010 can be used as a very effective proximity sensor, allowing the presence of
a nearby object (typically a hand) to be detected.
In this scenario, as the object being sensed is typically a hand, very large electrode sizes can be used, which is
extremely effective in increasing the sensitivity of the detector. In this case, the value of Cs will also need to be
increased to ensure improved sensitivity, as mentioned in Section 2.4.2. Note that, although this affects the
responsiveness of the sensor, it is less of an issue in proximity sensing applications; in such applications it is
necessary to detect simply the presence of a large object, rather than a small, precise touch.

Operation Specifics
3.1
Run Modes
3.1.1
Introduction
The QT1010 has three running modes which depend on the state of the SYNC pin (high or low).
3.1.2
Fast Mode
The QT1010 runs in Fast mode if the SYNC pin is permanently high. In this mode the QT1010 runs at maximum
speed at the expense of increased current consumption. Fast mode is useful when speed of response is the prime
design requirement. The delay between bursts in Fast mode is approximately 1 ms, as shown in Figure 3-1.
Figure 3-1. Fast Mode Bursts (SYNC Held High)
SNSK
~1 ms
SYNC
Low Power Mode
The QT1010 runs in Low Power (LP) mode if the SYNC pin is held low. In this mode it sleeps for approximately
80 ms at the end of each burst, saving power but slowing response. On detecting a possible key touch, it temporarily
switches to Fast mode until either the key touch is confirmed or found to be spurious (via the detect integration
process). It then returns to LP mode after the key touch is resolved, as shown in Figure 3-2.

3.1.4
SYNC Mode
It is possible to synchronize the device to an external clock source by placing an appropriate waveform on the SYNC
pin. SYNC mode can synchronize multiple QT1010 devices to each other to prevent cross-interference, or it can be
used to enhance noise immunity from low frequency sources such as 50Hz or 60Hz mains signals.
The SYNC pin is sampled at the end of each burst. If the device is in Fast mode and the SYNC pin is sampled high,
then the device continues to operate in Fast mode (Figure 3-1 on page 7). If SYNC is sampled low, then the device
goes to sleep. From then on, it will operate in SYNC mode (Figure 3-2). Therefore, to guarantee entry into SYNC
mode the low period of the SYNC signal should be longer than the burst length (Figure 3-3).

SYNC
However, once SYNC mode has been entered, if the SYNC signal consists of a series of short pulses (>10 µs) then
a burst will only occur on the falling edge of each pulse (Figure 3-4) instead of on each change of SYNC signal, as
normal (Figure 3-3).
In SYNC mode, the device will sleep after each measurement burst (just as in LP mode) but will be awakened by a
change in the SYNC signal in either direction, resulting in a new measurement burst. If SYNC remains unchanged
for a period longer than the LP mode sleep period (about 80 ms), the device will resume operation in either Fast or
LP mode depending on the level of the SYNC pin (Figure 3-3).
There is no detect integrator (DI) in SYNC mode (each touch is a detection) but the Max On-duration will depend on
the time between SYNC pulses; see Section 3.3 and Section 3.4 on page 9. Recalibration timeout is a fixed number
of measurements so will vary with the SYNC period.

3.2
Threshold
The internal signal threshold level is fixed at 10 counts of change with respect to the internal reference level, which in
turn adjusts itself slowly in accordance with the drift compensation mechanism.
The QT1010 employs a hysteresis dropout of two counts of the delta between the reference and threshold levels.
3.3
Max On-duration
If an object or material obstructs the sense pad the signal may rise enough to create a detection, preventing further
operation. To prevent this, the sensor includes a timer which monitors detections. If a detection exceeds the timer
setting the sensor performs a full recalibration. This is known as the Max On-duration feature and is set to ~60s (at
3V in LP mode). This will vary slightly with Cs and if SYNC mode is used. As the internal timebase for Max Onduration is determined by the burst rate, the use of SYNC can cause dramatic changes in this parameter depending
on the SYNC pulse spacing. For example, at 60Hz SYNC mode the Max On-duration will be ~6s at 3V.
3.4
Detect Integrator
It is desirable to suppress detections generated by electrical noise or from quick brushes with an object. To
accomplish this, the QT1010 incorporates a detect integration (DI) counter that increments with each detection until
a limit is reached, after which the output is activated. If no detection is sensed prior to the final count, the counter is
reset immediately to zero. In the QT1010, the required count is four. In LP mode the device will switch to Fast mode
temporarily in order to resolve the detection more quickly; after a touch is either confirmed or denied the device will
revert back to normal LP mode operation automatically.
The DI can also be viewed as a “consensus filter” that requires four successive detections to create an output.
3.5
Forced Sensor Recalibration
The QT1010 has no recalibration pin; a forced recalibration is accomplished when the device is powered up or after
the recalibration timeout. However, supply drain is low so it is a simple matter to treat the entire IC as a controllable
load; driving the QT1010's Vdd pin directly from another logic gate or a microcontroller port will serve as both power
and “forced recalibration”. The source resistance of most CMOS gates and microcontrollers is low enough to provide
direct power without problem.
3.6
Drift Compensation
Signal drift can occur because of changes in Cx and Cs over time. It is crucial that drift be compensated for,
otherwise false detections, non-detections, and sensitivity shifts will follow.
Drift compensation (Figure 3-5) is performed by making the reference level track the raw signal at a slow rate, but
only while there is no detection in effect. The rate of adjustment must be performed slowly, otherwise legitimate
detections could be ignored. The QT1010 drift compensates using a slew-rate limited change to the reference level;
the threshold and hysteresis values are slaved to this reference.
Once an object is sensed, the drift compensation mechanism ceases since the signal is legitimately high, and
therefore should not cause the reference level to change.

Figure 3-5. Drift Compensation
Signal
Threshold

Reference
Output
The QT1010 drift compensation is asymmetric; the reference level drift-compensates in one direction faster than it
does in the other. Specifically, it compensates faster for decreasing signals than for increasing signals. Increasing
signals should not be compensated for quickly, since an approaching finger could be compensated for partially or
entirely before even approaching the sense electrode. However, an obstruction over the sense pad, for which the
sensor has already made full allowance, could suddenly be removed leaving the sensor with an artificially elevated
reference level and thus become insensitive to touch. In this latter case, the sensor will compensate for the object's
removal very quickly, usually in only a few seconds.
With large values of Cs and small values of Cx, drift compensation will appear to operate more slowly than with the
converse. Note that the positive and negative drift compensation rates are different.
3.7
Response Time
The QT1010's response time is highly dependent on run mode and burst length, which in turn is dependent on Cs
and Cx. With increasing Cs, response time slows, while increasing levels of Cx reduce response time. The response
time will also be a lot slower in LP or SYNC mode due to a longer time between burst measurements.
3.8
Spread Spectrum
The QT1010 modulates its internal oscillator by ±7.5% during the measurement burst. This spreads the generated
noise over a wider band, reducing emission levels. This also reduces susceptibility since there is no longer a single
fundamental burst frequency.
3.9
Output Features
3.9.1
Output
The output of the QT1010 is active-high upon detection. The output will remain active-high for the duration of the
detection, or until the Max On-duration expires, whichever occurs first. If a Max On-duration timeout occurs first, the
sensor performs a full recalibration and the output becomes inactive (low) until the next detection.
3.9.2
HeartBeat Output
The QT1010 output has a HeartBeat “health” indicator superimposed on it in all modes. This operates by taking the
output pin into a three-state mode for 15 µs, once before every QT burst. This output state can be used to determine
that the sensor is operating properly, using one of several simple methods, or it can be ignored.
The HeartBeat indicator can be sampled by using a pull-up resistor on the OUT pin (Figure 3-6), and feeding the
resulting positive-going pulse into a counter, flip flop, one-shot, or other circuit. The pulses will only be visible when
the chip is not detecting a touch.

If the sensor is wired to a microcontroller as shown in Figure 3-7 on page 11, the microcontroller can reconfigure the
load resistor to either Vss or Vdd depending on the output state of the QT1010, so that the pulses are evident in
either state.

Electromechanical devices like relays will usually ignore the short HeartBeat pulse. The pulse also has too low a duty
cycle to visibly affect LEDs. It can be filtered completely if desired, by adding an RC filter to the output, or if
interfacing directly and only to a high-impedance CMOS input, by doing nothing or at most adding a small noncritical
capacitor from OUT to Vss.
3.9.3
Output Drive
The OUT pin is active high and can sink or source up to 2 mA. When a large value of Cs (>20 nF) is used the OUT
current should be limited to <1 mA to prevent gain-shifting side effects, which happen when the load current creates
voltage drops on the die and bonding wires; these small shifts can materially influence the signal level to cause
detection instability.

Circuit Guidelines
4.1
More Information
Refer to Application Note QTAN0002, Secrets of a Successful QTouch Design and the Touch Sensors Design Guide
(both downloadable from the Atmel website), for more information on construction and design methods.
4.2
Sample Capacitor
Cs is the charge sensing sample capacitor. The required Cs value depends on the thickness of the panel and its
dielectric constant. Thicker panels require larger values of Cs. Typical values are 2 nF to 50 nF depending on the
sensitivity required; larger values of Cs demand higher stability and better dielectric to ensure reliable sensing.
The Cs capacitor should be a stable type, such as X7R ceramic or PPS film. For more consistent sensing from unit
to unit, 5% tolerance capacitors are recommended. X7R ceramic types can be obtained in 5% tolerance at little or no
extra cost. In applications where high sensitivity (long burst length) is required the use of PPS capacitors is
recommended.
For battery powered operation a higher value sample capacitor is recommended (typical value 8.2 nF).
4.3
UDFN/USON Package Restrictions
The central pad on the underside of the UDFN/USON chip is connected to ground. Do not run any tracks underneath
the body of the chip, only ground.
4.4
Power Supply and PCB Layout
See Section 5.2 on page 14 for the power supply range. At 3 V current drain averages less than 500 µA in Fast
mode.
If the power supply is shared with another electronic system, care should be taken to ensure that the supply is free of
digital spikes, sags, and surges which can adversely affect the QT1010. The QT1010 will track slow changes in Vdd,
but it can be badly affected by rapid voltage fluctuations. It is highly recommended that a separate voltage regulator
be used just for the QT1010 to isolate it from power supply shifts caused by other components.
If desired, the supply can be regulated using a Low Dropout (LDO) regulator, although such regulators often have
poor transient line and load stability. See Application Note QTAN0002, Secrets of a Successful QTouch™ Design for
further information.
Parts placement: The chip should be placed to minimize the SNSK trace length to reduce low frequency pickup,
and to reduce stray Cx which degrades gain. The Cs and Rs resistors (see Figure 1-1 on page 4) should be placed
as close to the body of the chip as possible so that the trace between Rs and the SNSK pin is very short, thereby
reducing the antenna-like ability of this trace to pick up high frequency signals and feed them directly into the chip. A
ground plane can be used under the chip and the associated discrete components, but the trace from the Rs resistor
and the electrode should not run near ground, to reduce loading.
For best EMC performance the circuit should be made entirely with SMT components.
Electrode trace routing: Keep the electrode trace (and the electrode itself) away from other signal, power, and
ground traces including over or next to ground planes. Adjacent switching signals can induce noise onto the sensing
signal; any adjacent trace or ground plane next to, or under, the electrode trace will cause an increase in Cx load and
desensitize the device.
Note:
For proper operation a 100 nF (0.1 µF) ceramic bypass capacitor must be used directly between Vdd and
Vss, to prevent latch-up if there are substantial Vdd transients; for example, during an ESD event. The
bypass capacitor should be placed very close to the Vss and Vdd pins.

Appendix A.
Note:
A.1
Migrating from QT100A
This appendix applies to the use of the SOT23-6 package only.
Introduction
This appendix describes the issues that should be considered when migrating designs from the QT100A to the
QT1010.
A.2
Cs Capacitor
The Cs Capacitor should be increased in value, assuming that other factors, such as the voltage level and electrode
size, remain the same. For example, at 3 V, a Cs value of 4.7 nF should be increased to 8.2 nF.
A.3
PCB Layout
There are no PCB layout issues. The 6-pin WSON package used by the QT100A shares a common footprint with the
6-pin SOT23-6 package used by the QT1010. Both packages share the same pinouts.
A.4
Power Consumption
The QT1010 has a range of 1.8 – 5.5 V for Vdd, compared with 2.0 – 5.5 V on the QT100A.
Notice should also be taken of the differences in power consumption in both Fast and LP operation modes.
