Introduction: Capacitive Touch Sensing

In this video we will be looking at using a PIC micro that has the capacitive touch sensing module on board.  This will be the PIC16f727 chip.  These are part of the mTouch series of PIC micro's that Microchip has come out with.  I talk in this video about some cad software that you can download a free trial for and also some flux pens that kester has.  I have included two links below for these two things.  Please check them out.

Hi, thanks heaps for the tutorial.
Do you know if I would be able to connect sensor pads in a matrix style connection for 36 pads using a 3x12 matrix?
