Azoteq IQS7223 Capacitive Touch/Proximity Controller ICs

Azoteq IQS7223 Capacitive Touch/Proximity Controller ICs offer accurate long-term and power-on presence detection with an I2C communication interface, configurable GPIOs, and low-power options. These ICs feature on-chip calculations that enable the IC to respond effectively, event/streaming modes, automated system power modes for optimal response, and a customizable user interface. The IQS7223 ICs include built-in functions such as dedicated intelligent wear output, differential measurements, automatic tuning, noise filtering, and debounce/hysteresis. These ProxFusion® ICs are ideal for headphone wear detection, fitness band or smartwatch wear detection, and presence detection purposes.
