touches the Green light, Touch sensor will react
and change the color to Red.
This Evaluation board has 4×2 switch pattern with an
LED in the center. Acrylic board is mounted on the board
with a space of approx. 1.5 mm. When the user touches the
Green light, which is lit under this acrylic board, the color
will change to Red.
Configuration
1. Connector for Multifunctional USB−I2C
Conversion module:
This is used to connect Multifunctional USB−I2C
conversion module “MM−FT232H”. By using this
module, user can connect the Evaluation board and
PC. By connecting this Evaluation board to PC
and activating Touch sensor evaluation application
“LC717A00AR Software” on PC, user can change
the parameter of touch sensor LSI, or can monitor
an operation condition. Also, power will be
supplied from this connector.
2. Power source switching jumper:
This is used to set a supplier of the power source.
If this is set on “PC” side, power is supplied from
Multifunctional USB conversion module. If this is
set on “AC ADAPTER” side, power is supplied
from DC jack.

light (See Figure 3).
4. Press RESET switch in case of error LED light up
or when Evaluation board is acting strange.
5. Please note: If the user directly touches the IC on
the Evaluation board or patterns with their finger,
it may cause malfunction or breakdown.
How to Use
1. When receiving power from PC, set Power
switching jumper to “PC” side and connect
“MM−FT232H” to the connector for
Multifunctional USB conversion module (See
Figure 2). If receiving power from optional AC
adapter, set the jumper to “AC ADAPTER” side
and connect AD adapter to DC jack.

CAUTION: When supplying power from Multifunctional conversion module while having Power switch jumper on “AC ADAPTER” side, Green
LED will slightly light up. This is because the current flows via I2C signal line and Pull-up resistor. PLEASE DO NOT USE IN THIS
CONDITION – It may cause equipment failure.
Also, please DO NOT supply power from both AD adapter and Multifunctional USB conversion module while having Power switch
jumper on “AC ADAPTER” side – This may also cause equipment failure.
