    Question:

    Does PSoC® 4700S support inductive linear slider design?

     

    Answer:

    Although the MagSense™ component does not include the linear slider widget, PSoC 4700S series devices can support linear slider design. This is done by combining multiple button widgets, as shown in the following figure.

     

    Calculate the finger position using the slider centroid algorithm, which is the same algorithm used for self-capacitance sliders. Note that the centroid algorithm must be added manually; the MagSense component does not generate it automatically for button widgets.

    To get a separate .c/.h source code file of the slider centroid algorithm, go to https://community.cypress.com/docs/DOC-17145.
