2. Overview of the AT42QT1011
2.1
Introduction
The AT42QT1011 (QT1011) is a digital burst mode charge-transfer (QT™) sensor that is capable
of detecting near-proximity 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 QT1011 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 2 shows a basic circuit.
The QT1011 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 QT1011.
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
2.4.1
Sensitivity
Introduction
The sensitivity on the QT1011 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.
3
9542G–AT42–03/10
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.
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 QT1011 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 QT1011 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.
3. Operation Specifics
3.1
3.1.1
Run Modes
Introduction
The QT1011 has three running modes which depend on the state of the SYNC pin (high or low).
3.1.2
Fast Mode
The QT1011 runs in Fast mode if the SYNC pin is permanently high. In this mode the QT1011
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.

SYNC
Low Power Mode
The QT1011 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 on page 5.

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 QT1011 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 5). 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 on page 6).

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 on
page 6) 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); see Section 3.4.
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 QT1011 employs a hysteresis dropout of two counts of the delta between the reference and
threshold levels.
3.3
Max On-duration
The max on-duration of this device is infinite; that is, the device will not automatically recalibrate
due to a persistant detection.

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 QT1011 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
QT1011, 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 QT1011 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 QT1011'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, nondetections, 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 QT1011 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.

9542G–AT42–03/10
The QT1011's 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 QT1011'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 QT1011 modulates its internal oscillator by ±7.5 percent 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
3.9.1
Output Features
Output
The output of the QT1011 is active-high upon detection. The output will remain active-high for
the duration of the detection.
3.9.2
HeartBeat™ Output
The QT1011 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 9, the microcontroller
can reconfigure the load resistor to either Vss or Vdd depending on the output state of the
QT1011, 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.

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 percent tolerance capacitors are recommended. X7R ceramic types
can be obtained in 5 percent 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
Power Supply and PCB Layout
See Section 5.2 on page 12 for the power supply range. At 3V 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 QT1011. The
QT1011 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 QT1011 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 2) 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.
10
AT42QT1011
9542G–AT42–03/10
AT42QT1011
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.
Important 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.
4.4
Power On
On initial power up, the QT1011 requires approximately 100 ms to power on to allow power
supplies to stabilize. During this time the OUT pin state is not valid and should be ignored.
