The model can define a set of object management services (similar to the IETF?s Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) ) that are not explicitly tied to specific objects and can extend to objects across all ontology classes. While object management parallels object-oriented programming, this service model can represent a metadata abstraction from programming that is similar to concepts in model-driven development. These services can create metadata and interpret that metadata at runtime. The?

A new "touch" for the modern user interface

Microchip Technology Inc.

An innovative product needs a modern user interface to meet customer expectations. An outdated user interface puts revenue at risk. The CAP1xxx, MTCH10x, and AT42QTxxxx families of turnkey touch controllers provide robust and water-tolerant touch sensing. This technology is based on Microchip?s decades of experience in touch. User interfaces with push buttons have several moving parts, which significantly decrease reliability, add complexity and increase tooling costs. Microchip?s touch solutions allow you to create a high-impact?
