Microchip Technology Introduces MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit

Microchip Technology MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit

Microchip Technology introduced the MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit for 3D gesturing systems. The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit enables engineers to integrate an advanced 3D hand-position and gesturing user interface to virtually any electronic product. The Hillstar Development Kit (part #DM160218) is available for now for $179. The MGC3130 Configurable 3D Gesture Controller is shipping in production volumes.

MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit

  • MGC3130 module
  • I2C to USB bridge module
  • 4-layer reference electrode with 95 x 60mm sensitive area

The MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit provides designers with an easy, step-by-step approach to develop 3D gesturing systems with Microchip’s MGC3130 and electrodes that meet their specific space requirements. The MGC3130 is the world’s first single-chip 3D gesture/free space position tracking solution.

The new kit is a complete MGC3130 reference system. It includes a MGC3130 Module and one example reference electrode. With several additional reference electrode designs, the Aurea Graphical User Interface Software, and an I2C to USB Bridge Module, the MGC3130 Hillstar Development Kit enables an easy design-in of the MGC3130 into several different form factors.
