Multi-Purpose 12-Key Capacitive Keypad

Vast improvement over flaky 1970’s touch controls

Multi-Purpose 12-Key Capacitive Keypad
In this article we rebirth the touch key, but with 2015 technology meaning an AVR micro, clever software and a advanced board design. Time to throw in AVR micro power!

Download the BOM list
The BOM (Bill of Materials) is the technically exhaustive listing of parts and other hardware items used to produce the working and tested prototype of any Elektor Labs project. The BOM file contains deeper information than the Component List published for the same project in Elektor Magazine. If required the BOM gets updated directly by our lab engineers. As a reader, you can download the list here.
