The following equipment from the evaluation kit is required:
Additional required equipment:
Computer (Windows or Linux)
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 risks damage if the FPC cable is connected in wrong direction.
Press down the flip lock.
If the sensor is of the 0° type: Place the sensor on a table with the steel surface facing downwards and with the optical surface facing towards you.
Make sure no object is within the touch active area of the sensor 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 is of the 90° type: Use double-sided adhesive tape to fasten the steel surface of the sensor 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.
To visualize touches, you can for for example use Paint (default Windows application) and draw lines by moving you finger in the touch active area.
