Today FTDI announces the availability of the VINCO-TOUCH shield. In order to offer engineers greater scope to create ground-breaking, cost-effective system designs within a shorter period of time, USB solutions specialist Future Technology Devices International Limited (FTDI) is adding to the range of input/output application boards (or ‘shields’) available for its Vinco development module. The new Vinco Touch Key shield mates with the Vinco motherboard, providing it with full touch pad functionality.
Dave Sroka, Global Product Director at FTDI commented, "The new Touch Key shield demonstrates the Vinco platform’s ability to utilise the Android Open Accessory initiative, so that devices using the Android operating system, such as tablet PCs, can control items of external hardware through a human machine interface (HMI), over USB.”
The application note AN_196 gives an example of using the Vinco Touch Key Shield in an Android environment.
