What parts are includes in the bundle?
- The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit builds a complete MGC310 3D Gesture Tracking and Recognition reference system consisting of:
- MGC3130 Module
- I2C to USB Bridge Module
- 4-Layer reference electrode (95 x 60mm sensitive area)
The Hillstar concept includes a collection of layout references (Gerber files) for Electrode designs and ready-to-use Sensor modules with MGC3130 backside assembly.
Microchip will provide the winner of the Blogging Challenge a suite of hardware and software tools supporting various PIC MCUs. The prize will consist of ICD3 Debugger () , Explorer 16 Demo Board () or PIC18F Explorer Board () and a choice of an 8-bit (), 16-bit (), or 32-bit (), MPLAB C compiler – total prize value is approximately $750!
Join our Free Webinar 28th May - Adoption of 3D Gesture Technology using Microchip’s MGC3130
Presented by Thomas Linder from Microchip
This webinar will explain how the GestIC solution works and how the MGC3130 may be interfaced to various hosts including an 8-Bit PIC microcontroller and a typical single board computer.
Time will be spent looking at the Software Development Kit (SDK) and supporting documentation of the MGC3130 plus we will show how one of Microchip’s Field Applications Engineers rapidly built his own sensor electrode and interfaced the MGC3130 to a PIC MCU.
