STMicroelectronics, a global semiconductor company serving customers of various electronics applications, and Fieldscale, an ST Authorized Partner and provider of simulation software, have joined forces to simplify development of touch-enabled user interfaces for smart devices containing ST’s STM32 microcontrollers.
ST and Fieldscale now introduce support for ST’s Arm Cortex-based 32-bit microcontrollers to Fieldscale’s SENSE development platform.
Fieldscale SENSE is an end-to-end solution for the design, schematic capture and system-level simulation of capacitive touch sensors. The latest version lets STM32 users quickly design the touch sensor and PCB layout for virtual system simulation purposes.
The cloud-based development platform implements electromagnetic algorithms that drive accurate prediction of the system performance. Users can optimize the design and quickly re-simulate to fine-tune the performance before committing to hardware.
“At Fieldscale, our goal is to offer to all capacitive-touch design engineers a complete software solution supporting them end-to-end, from the early design up to the tuning of the final system,” says Yiorgos Bontzios, PhD, Fieldscale CEO and co-founder. “Integrating STM32 support is a major achievement towards this goal and we couldn’t be more satisfied.”
“Customers using our STM32 microcontrollers can now take full advantage of Fieldscale SENSE to implement simple and intuitive touch-based controls for smart devices and give their products a competitive edge,” says Patrice Hamard, microcontroller product marketing manager, STMicroelectronics.
Fieldscale SENSE is available now as an online service and comes with a flexible pricing model.
