Cypress Webinar On March 26 Presents Real-World Example Of Touch Sensing Design Benefits


Free Online Seminar Examines how Cypress CapSense™ Solution
Helped Customer Overcome Design Challenges in Heated Ice Hockey Skate Blade

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 2008 - Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (NYSE: CY) today announced a free online seminar that looks at the benefits gained from adding a capacitive sensing interface to an actual system design. The 60-minute webinar entitled “Using Capacitive Sensing to Solve Real-World Design Problems” will be presented in conjunction with Electronic Engineering Times on Wednesday, March 26 at 9:00 a.m. PDT.

The presenters will give a detailed analysis of the design of an ice-hockey skate blade from Therma Blade, Inc., which uses heat to reduce friction between the blade and the ice surface. Cypress’s PSoC® CapSense™ solution allows the heat to be turned on and off using touch sensitive controls. The seminar will show how capacitive sensing solves the challenges of designing a switch that is water-resistant, durable, low-power, reliable, low-cost and can be easily assembled for high volume production.
