MC1509 Force Controller for 48x48 Matrix Sensors
MC1509 force controller is an electronic interface to sense resistance change by pressure applied to most resistive FSR matrix array sensors.
Sensors supported: FSR or resistive matrix sensors with less than or equal to 48 rows and 48 columns (2,304 sensing nodes)
Power: USB Powered
Data: 2D force mapping image
MC1509 is an ideal solution to build force mapping and 3D force sensing products at your own needs. MC1509 is a high resolution force controller that can measure resistance of almost any resistive type matrix multi-touch sensor arrays. MC1509 force controller adopts the cutting-edge multi-touch technology so it can detect pressure applied to multiple point of a sensor (multi-touch). MC1509 force controller is an ideal solution to build your own force mapping system (a.k.a. pressure distribution measurement system).
This controller is compatible with MS9705, MS9711, MS9712 matrix sensor arrays. Combined with these sensors, it can be used to build a general pressure mapping system, foot pressure mapping system, tactile sensor, multi-touch user input device, 3D force touch input device. If you have your own matrix sensor or a provider of matrix sensors, this controller also can be combined with your sensor to make your product line better.
In addition, C++, Python, and Java APIs are provided so that a customer can rapidly develop his/her own application easily.
