This lab explores contact sensors, including a snap action switch and a capacitive touch sensor. Students complete hands-on activities to examine mechanical switch debouncing, as well as scroll and single-button touch action using a capacitive touch sensor.
After completing this lab, students will be able to:
Apply software-based debouncing to a snap action switch.
Use capacitive touch sensing to simulate single-button touch and scroll actions.
