The following equipment from the evaluation kit is required:
Additional required equipment:
USB cable with a Micro USB type B connector
Make sure that the USB cable transmits both power and data and not only power.
Insert the FPC cable into the end of the connector, with the connector pads facing down, towards interface board. The yellow piece of PCB of the connector on the other side of the cable is facing upwards. Make sure the direction is straight into the connector and the pads have reached the end of the connector.
Make sure the connector pads of the FPC cable are facing downwards, towards interface board. The sensor module risks damage if the FPC cable is connected in wrong direction.
Press down the flip lock.
Connect a USB cable with a Micro USB type B connector to the interface board.
Make sure no object is within the touch active area of the sensor module before connecting power to the sensor through USB. The sensor calibrates itself when powered on and an object within the touch active area may interfere with the calibration.
If the sensor module is of the 0° type: place the module on a table with the steel surface facing downwards and with the optical surface facing towards you.
If the sensor module is of the 90° type: place the module on a table with the steel surface facing upwards, so the optical surface is facing upwards as well. Make sure no object is within the touch active area above the sensor module.
Alternatively, you can mount the sensor module by using tape in order to fasten the steel surface to the edge of a table, with the optical surface facing towards you.
Insert the USB cable into a computer.
The green LED on the interface board lights up when connected.
