Re: Touch Screen

Hi

Get data sheet for touch screen controllers from TI or ANALOG site read & learn how touch screen works from data sheet and application note

Also there is a nice article published in Elektor electronic magazine (last year) regarding the use of touch screen and how to use them



All the best

Re: Touch Screen

Hi there,


Generally there is a touchscreen controller of some form. A simple controller can be seen below:

With this you will get analogue values depending where you touch the screen.
Have a look below.

Of course you can get dedicated 4-wire resistive touch screen IC's which may or may not even give you a coordinate via I2C or SPI ect...


good luck
Bruce
