Hi Freaks,

I'm currently trying to get some working firmware for my loaner XPLAIN + QTouch Xplained board, so I can experiment with the QTouch technology. The QTouch Xplained box gives me the generic Atmel QTouch URL "for more information", but it seems Atmel has never heard of the board before; there's no references to it anywhere.

I've downloaded the QTouch library, but apart from finding and compiling the demos there -- which don't appear to work for the XPLAIN board -- I'm at a loss. Can someone refer me to a working sample QTouch application which I can test on the QTouch XPlained board, so I can get to grips with the library?

Cheers!

Dean, I admire you work and you are worth more than just simple quips.

I tried to do some research. As you have probably found the QTouch library readme says that it supports xmega devices from version 3.1 onwards. See also section 7.2.4.2.14 in the QTouch library documentation. The other thing to do is try sending an email to the Atmel quoted address which is touch at atmel.com

Thanks Mike - I think I'll have to do that. The annoying thing is that despite being a real Atmel board with a real Atmel box, it seems no one's ever heard of the board. The box directs me to http://www.atmel.com/xplain which lists only the XPLAIN board, and not the QTouch addon. No schematic, no documents of any type for it.

I think I'll have to turf the QTouch idea; I'll have to return the boards soon, and I lack the SM skills to create my own sensor board. Shame; the library *seems* nice enough, if I can ever get it working to the point where I can experiment with it.

Have you joined the qtouch forum at Atmel? May want to post some questions there. At worst you'll get some pm from Russian ladies trying to marry you or other. :?

I shamefully bugged Eivind about it, who's passed on my message to the QTouch group; hopefully there'll be some information and demos posted soon.

Note that was written in 2010.

 

There were certainly examples for the QT1 Xplained Pro kit by 2015:

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
  4. Difference between a crystal, and a crystal oscillatorhttps://www.avrfreaks.net/comment...

Seems to have been released about 2015.

 

That's 5 years after Dean's comment - so probably not what he was talking about!

 

There's a couple of App Notes about Touch on the Product Page - dunno if they help you ?
