aTouchSens, a S/W tool visualizing Touch IC Data


Introduction

aTouchSens is a S/W tool that helps your development by visualizing Touch IC data in real time.

It is difficult to use output data of the Touch IC without visualization. In addition, if you have multiple data on a single graph, it is a hassle to move data to a data analysis program such as Excel, after logging.

With a user-friendly UI, aTouchSens can improve the problems introduced above, at once. 

With up to 37 Graph Windows (6 for Main Graph, 31 for Sub Graph), it can analyze up to 31 data and select a data to output it in a graph form, allowing a variety of algorithm development.

In addition, aTouchSens can be useful for troubleshooting intermittent problems because this data can be stored directly as an Excel file and this storage function maintains its functionality for a long time until the user releases logging.

Functions of aTouchSens

aTouchSens, ABOV’s touch data analysis tool, consists of three modules as shown in Figure 2. 

PC and E-OCD II are connected via the USB port, and E-OCD II and the target IC are connected via I2C or UART, depending on debugging environment.


[Figure 2] Hardware Configuration


From the Control Panel located at the top of the program, you can manage the tasks such as power control, UART settings, graph settings, and logging.

From the Data Viewer located at the left side of the program, you can view the latest data read by IC, and set to display them in graphs (for example, add data offset, select a graph to display, and set a graph color).
