QTouch 1-wire Library

Overview

This is a library based on Dave Mellis' SoftwareSerial library that makes it easy to talk to QTouch (and other?) chipsets over the 1-wire serial interface. There are 2 examples included. One that simply polls the device for the status and one that utilizes an interrupt to trigger a read.

Installation

  • Download
  • Unzip, and add to Arduino/hardware/libraries/ (on a mac: /Applications/Arduino.app/Contents/Resources/Java/hardware/libraries)
  • To add to a new sketch choose Sketch->Import Library->Qtouch1wire

Demo Sketch

/*
 Qtouch QT1103 1-wire serial example

 polls and prints the status of the capacitive pads.

 if you have the E1103 evaluation board, the pads are layed out in the 2x5 grid like:
 96574
 81203
