PenMount’s User Friendly Firmware Parameter Settings

07/16/2015 | Bulletin No. : PMY15007

One of the reasons PenMount projected capacitive (PCI or PCAP) touch products deserve the trust of customers is that they need only use standard PenMount controller hardware and firmware to quickly integrate our PCI touch products into systems and setup their functions. In addition, our touch controllers are suitable for a wide range of application environments. At the same time, we have simplified the controller’s complicated firmware parameter settings to allow customers to flexibly adjust these parameters and increase the efficiency of their product design and development.

Whether during hardware or firmware design, PenMount fully considered the characteristics and pairings of PCI touch panels because the pairing of PCI touch panels and controllers affects the overall efficacy of PCI touch products. Our firmware design takes into consideration environmental issues that may affect PCI products and these hypothetical scenarios are all incorporated in PenMount PCI controller firmware design. In terms of noise interference, we possess the latest frequency hopping technology which effectively suppresses this noise. PenMount’s core value is the ability to achieve accurate signal detection and processing in our standard firmware to save customers the time required to identify sources of noise or interference and allow smooth integration of new PCI products into systems.

In addition to hardware and firmware design, our utility support for customers’ human machine interface (HMI) is also very comprehensively. PenMount currently provides three utilities including: parameter adjustment utility – PCIMSet, firmware update utility – PMUpdate, and detection utility – PCIScan. PCIMSet is a utility provided to PenMount distributors or system integrators, used primarily to make simple adjustments to and quickly set controller firmware parameters. The parameter adjustment functions provided by PCIMSet are as follows:

Touch panel size

Touch panel glass cover thickness

Controller-system interface

Set single/dual/multi point operation

Enable/disable water handling function

Set display rotation angle

Touch panel edge sensitivity compensation function

Touch panel operation sensitivity


We truly believe a good product comes from design! PenMount is committed to building diverse firmware parameters into our controllers to provide customers with reliable and simplified touch products. PenMount also provides comprehensive utilities to satisfy frequently encountered adjustment requirements to facilitate your product development.
