QTouch Capacitive Touch Controllers Receive UL Certification

Atmel has achieved certification for the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) 60730-1, a standard for automatic electrical controls for household and similar use, for the AT42QT1244/5 and AT42QT1481 capacitive touch controllers. With UL certification, household appliance OEMs can achieve system-level certification faster for products that include touch displays and controls developed with these devices.

Atmel is the first company to receive a functional safety certification for the Class B and C requirements related to control functions for ICs with capacitive touch capabilities for button, slider and wheel functionality. Our AT42QT1244/5 and AT42QT1481 controllers are ideal for appliances including stovetops, microwave ovens, coffee makers, washers and dryers.
