    • Raw Scanning Mode: Provides detailed capacitance values for advanced touch detection at 60hz

Sensing Technology

Muca uses projected mutual capacitance, the industry standard for multi-touch sensors. It measures touch by detecting changes in capacitance on a grid of electrodes. When a finger approaches, the electric field is disturbed, allowing the sensor to precisely identify touch points.

Detect true multitouch

Muca raw data can be combined with Computer Vision applications to explore true opportinities of this technology.
