Cypress’s PSoC® CapSense™ Technology Brings Durability And Elegance To Haier Group’s Touch-Sensitive Washing Machines And Water Heaters


Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced that its PSoC® CapSense™ solution enables the touch sensing interface inside multiple models of Haier washing machines and water heaters. The CapSense solution provides Haier a sleek interface attractive to consumers, while eliminating the deterioration experienced with mechanical buttons and switches.

“Cypress’s CapSense is used in our washing machines’ touch sensing buttons,” said Xu Sheng, Director of Technology Development Department, Haier Washing Machine Business Unit. “Among all white goods, washing machines face the most severe operating environment. Haier has very strict reliability requirements for touch sensing input solutions, and CapSense was selected over other solutions because of its flexibility, reliability, and performance in the presence of humidity, vibration, high temperature and interference.”

“Meeting the high reliability standards of Haier, a leading home appliance company, is a resounding endorsement of Cypress’s CapSense solution,” said Carl Brasek, business unit director for Cypress’s CapSense products. “This design win is a testimony to CapSense’s reliable sensing operation in harsh environmental conditions.”
