I'm looking for a solid reference design for using the capacities touch sensing lib. on Mega & XMega devices. It seems all the boards that offered this are no longer available. Right now I can only find $200 boards for SAM devices or add-on boards for the Xplain board. Should I be worried for the future of the Atmel cap. sensing technology? Seems that no one has interested in providing evaluation tools or even offer ref. designs. Am I missing something?

But, I think, that is the way Atmel is supporting this stuff nowadays?

 

It certainly makes more sense for them than having to produce special boards for each MCU with & without cap-sense...

That is true, however they used to have a number of smaller boards and that seemed to be not a bad idea and more accessible. Also did anyone found a reference design on Atmel's website?

As I mentioned in my PM to you, you might want to post these questions in the Capacitive Touch community:

 

https://community.atmel.com/capa...

 

There you might find the knowledge you seek.

I actually have a post there about the specific setup I'm using for testing the Studio generated code. So far nothing... I think it's a shame that forum is not part of freaks.
