  • From AN3747: “The minimum pad size for Freescale’s products is 3 mm by 3 mm when using thin film overlays to about 0.5 mm thickness of acrylic or ABS plastic. The maximum pad size used for touch is about 15 mm by 15 mm. This thicker pad can be used with plastics of up to 3 mm thickness and still achieve consistent operation.” . From the image measurements the used pad size seems to be 13mm here.

  • I love the presentation of the 11 knob! Highly amusing.

  • After a few months of trying to get this to work i can say that it takes a huge amount of time to get it working and when it does it is still worse than a normal servo with regards to precision. Save yourself some time and use a normal servo instead.

  • For those wanting the latest source code: I managed to get a hold of the v2.7.2 source code by emailing a request to techsupport@sparkfun.com . Send me an email exuvo@exuvo.se if you want a copy.
