Touchy Project Page

Touchy (Project #7, September 16)

We've designed a simple touch and scroll board based on Silicon Labs' EFM8SB1 'Sleepy Bee' microcontroller. The microcontroller comes in a QSOP24 package that has a 0.625 mm pitch (distance between the centre of each pin). This kit could be a challenge to solder, but we like challenges, and we hope that you do too! (We have a QSOP/SMD practice board to help.)

Touchy I/O Firmware

Contributed by @kbx81 on Jul 21, 2017

Here is some updated firmware I’ve written for #p07-Touchy, available on GitHub. I hope everybody will try these out! The I/O firmware should make it easy to interface Touchy with other kits & projects. Let me know if you have any comments or suggestions! I also made a video that I’ve posted on YouTube demonstrating the I/O firmware:
