1.1
How to Use This Guide
This guide is an ideal starting point for those new to PRoC™-UI. In addition, you can use this guide to:

Become familiar with the advantages of using PRoC-UI

Become familiar with the PRoC-UI product portfolio



Become familiar with the many resources available to support your entire design cycle
1.2
PRoC-UI Products
PRoC-UI offers an award winning single-chip solution for capacitive touch interface with
wireless 2.4 GHz proprietary radio. It combines Cypress’s CapSense® and TrueTouch®
capacitive touch technologies with 2.4 GHz GFSK-modulated 1 Mbps wireless
transceiver to offer a complete solution for capacitive human interface and wireless
communication.
PRoC-UI’s low-power operation makes it ideal for battery operated applications, such as
human interface devices (HID - touch mice and wireless trackpads), remote controllers,
and toys. The one-chip solution effectively combines three chips (system MCU, touch
controller, and radio functionality) into one, to save bill of material (BOM) cost, board
space, and power. The solution is also more reliable than multi-chip implementations.

Introduction
1.2.1.1 BOM Integration
Figure 1-1. Comparison of Designs with and without PRoC-UI
PRoC-UI integrates three ICs into one chip, which has a TrueTouch sensing engine, a 2.4-GHz proprietary radio, and
an 8-bit MCU. Designing applications such as touch mouse, capacitive scroll mouse, touch remotes, and nanodongles becomes difficult because there is limited space available on the main PCB. PRoC-UI allows you to easily
design such applications and even add more components such as additional buttons and LEDs. The integration
enables you to save on BoM costs in the applications mentioned above as well as applications such as wireless
trackpads and wireless keyboard with trackpads. Figure 1-1Figure 1-1. Comparison of Designs with and without
PRoC-UI illustrates the value PRoC-UI brings to your design.
1.2.1.2 Low Power
Power consumption is a key design parameter in all battery operated systems. PRoC-UI uses Cypress’ low-power
Wireless USB-NL radio for wireless communication. Being a single-chip solution, PRoC-UI requires only one core to
be powered up for wireless communication and capacitive sensing at all times. This saves power when compared to
a module solution or a three chip solution. The table below shows the main components of a wireless design and how
PRoC-UI saves power by eliminating the use of a capacitive sensing module.

1.2.1.3 Ease of Design and Faster Time to Market
To ensure quick time to market, Cypress provides reference design material such as sample schematics, layout, and
platform firmware, which supports standard one-finger and two-finger gestures.
PRoC-UI reduces design cycle time considerably due to the availability of platform firmware, autotuning of sensors,
and on-chip library for all standard gestures with up to two fingers. Figure 1-2 shows the available resources at each
stage of the design cycle and the reduction in time to market.

Introduction
Figure 1-3. Applications using PRoC-UI Capacitive Sensing Variants
1.3.1 PRoC- CS (CapSense Variant)
PRoC-CS adds Cypress’s leading capacitive touch sensing engine with the WUSB-NL, a mature wireless 2.4-GHz
proprietary radio. It supports up to 26 capacitive touch buttons, sliders, and proximity sensors bundled with Cypress’s
SmartSense technology for easy setup and tuning. The integrated capacitive sensing controller has an ultra-low deep
sleep current of 100 nA and a low active current of 7 µA per sensor at 500 ms scan rate.
PRoC-CS is available in two packages – 68-QFN package (CYRF89435-68LTXC) for applications such as a wireless
remotes and a 40-QFN package (CYRF89435-40LTXC) for applications such as mouse scroll wheel, wireless
keyboard with multimedia keys, and so on.
1.3.2 PRoC-TT (TrueTouch Variant)
Extending the touch advantage further, PRoC-TT supports capacitive touch with one-finger and two-finger gestures in
addition to WUSB-NL, the proprietary wireless 2.4 GHz radio. The integrated touch controller supports up to 26 senor
inputs and has fast scan rates of 400 µs per sensor.
Library for one-finger and two-finger gestures is available on chip. The latest addition to the gesture library is the
Windows 8 specific gestures. If your application needs a gesture enabled touch surface, PRoC-TT is the ideal
solution for you. PRoC-TT is available in 68-QFN packages (CYRF89535-68LTXC).
1.3.3 PRoC-USB (USB Variant)
PRoC-USB integrates the WUSB-NL radio-on-a-chip with the enCoRe™ V MCU and supports full-speed USB (up to
12 Mbps). With 32 KB of on-board flash memory, PRoC-USB has ample space for advanced algorithms needed for
optimized and robust wireless communication.
PRoC-USB is available in 40-QFN packages (CYRF89235-40LTXC). It is an ideal solution for applications such as
Nano dongles, where space is a key factor while designing.

Introduction
1.3.4 PRoC-EMB (Embedded Variant)
For applications such as wireless mouse and wireless controllers that do not require touch, PRoC-EMB provides a
single-chip solution by integrating the WUSB-NL radio-on-a-chip with the enCoRe V MCU. The solution supports 35
GPIO and an onboard 10-bit ADC.
PRoC-EMB is ideal for applications such as wireless mice, wireless controllers, and remote controllers, which do not
require touch or USB. The integrated chip can also be used on the receiver side for applications where a dongle is
not needed. PRoC-EMB is available in 68-QFN packages (CYRF89135-68LTXC).

Demonstration Kits
2.3.1 Windows 8 Trackpad Demo Kits
Figure 2-1. 105 mm x 65 mm Standalone Trackpad
The wireless trackpad demo kit offers easy demonstration of Windows 8 specific gestures along with various onefinger and two-finger simple gestures on a wireless trackpad. The 105 mm x 65 mm touch area supported by the
trackpad is a recommendation from Microsoft for all trackpads supporting Windows 8 specific gestures.
The wireless trackpad demonstrates the single-chip solution’s true capabilities by decoding all one-finger and twofinger gestures on a large-sized trackpad and still maintaining a 125 reports/sec report rate for mouse pointing. The
kit includes a dongle, which can be plugged into any Windows machine for evaluation of gestures.
The demonstration kit is available under Non Disclosure Agreement with Cypress. To purchase and start evaluating
our TrueTouch solution, contact us at [email protected] or your nearest sales office for more information. Click
here to locate your nearest sales office.
2.3.2 Wireless Keyboard with Multimedia Keys
Wireless entertainment keyboards usually use capacitive sensing for multimedia buttons such as play media, pause,
stop, and next. Some keyboards also use capacitive sensing sliders for finer control on volume.
The demo uses two chips – PRoC-CS for capacitive sensing, wireless communication, and battery monitoring; and
enCoRe-V for handling keyboard keys. The demo includes a dongle, which works on any Windows machine.

bridge devices. The PSoC Programmer hardware layer is explained in the COM guide documentation as well as
example code across the following languages: C#, C, Perl, and Python.
2.7
I2C-to-USB Bridge Kit
The CY3240-I2USB kit allows you to test, tune, and debug hardware and software by bridging the USB port to I2C.
Populated with the CY8C24894 PSoC device, a wide variety of devices can be connected to the PC using this bridge
including:

EEPROMs

Real-time clocks

ADC/DAC converters

LCD displays

Regulated DC/DC converters

Port expanders

Other devices incorporating the I2C interface
The number of devices that can be connected is constrained only by the I2C address limit and physical ability of the
I2C bus.
2.8
Debugging/Data Viewing Tools
Software tools are available for data viewing, debugging, and tuning CapSense applications. These tools can help
you monitor critical data, such as raw counts and CapSense parameters.
The debugging and data viewing tools are:

Bridge Control Panel

MultiChart
For more details on the tools, see the application note AN2397 – CapSense Data Viewing Tools.

2.8.1 Bridge Control Panel
Bridge Control Panel is a software tool used with CY3240 USB-I2C Bridge to enable communication with I2C slave
devices. The software tool is used to configure I2C devices as well as acquire and process data received from I2C
slave devices. The Bridge Control Panel helps in optimizing, debugging, and calibrating the target applications.

2.8.2 MultiChart
MultiChart is a simple PC tool for real-time CapSense data viewing and logging. The application allows you to view
data from up to 48 sensors, save and print charts, and save data for later analysis in a spreadsheet.
