I have begun to ask questions about design of capacitive-touch interfaces, whether as touchscreens or buttons/sliders/wheels.

I did not find an associated tag.

The closest I could find were the switches and capacitor/capacitance tags. I feel that these are too broad. Additionally, I found the touchscreen tag, which can make use of capacitive touch, but that is not always the use (and in the case of my questions will not be the use).

It's true that capacitive touch sensor applications are different from capacitive touchscreen applications.

I have some experience with capacitive touch sensor ICs for automotive OEMs, so I would probably watch this tag if it existed. But I haven't noticed any questions on this topic here thus far. Are there some existing / questions that would benefit from being tagged capacitive-touch?

Also, when creating a new tag, it's best to have some clear definition in mind. When a contributor asks a question and has to choose some tags, the text that pops up comes from the Tag Info. See https://electronics.meta.stackexchange.com/tags/tags/info Having a few clearly written sentences here helps the contributors and editors keep things organized.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Do the above fit the bill? I started focusing on lithium ion cell power supply and LED driving, but I'll be back to the (cap touch) interfacing in the future : j \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ I already know I'll be asking about cap touch devoted interface ICs vs programming the microcontroller already needed in the system (like through TI's CapTIvate). There's also trying to use a grid touch IC's offering for numerous buttons on a not grid (where the nodes are instead clustered in different areas to form 'buttons' rather than a screen) \$\endgroup\$
