.ves. The series integrates detecting and processing functions into a single-chip microcontroller that can be quickly programmed, Omron says.
Workbench model B6TW is a tool that enables design-to-function verification. It can be operated by any designer with a basic knowledge of digital circuitry for parameter setting, operation monitoring, and capacitance calculation functions. Unlike membrane switches, they require no special tooling, Omron says.
“Omron’s touch sensing ICs offer OEMs reduced time to market and lower application cost as compared to other touch panel devices,” says Omron spokesperson Cami Marsh.
B6TS comes in four versions: the 4-channel SSOP-20 package B6TS-04LT, the 8-channel QFP-32 package B6TS-08NF, the new 8-channel QFP-32 package B6TS-08LF, and the new 52 pin TQFP package B6TS-16LF.ctively.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
