The IQS213A SwipeSwitchTM is a fully integrated two or three channel capacitive swipe sensor with market leading sensitivity and automatic tuning of the sense electrodes. The IQS213A provides a minimalist implementation requiring few external components, with programming options and an I2C compatible interface that allow configuration for specialised applications.

The IQS213A is specifically designed to operate in wet and harsh environments and provides a capacitive solution in applications that previously required bulky and expensive electromechanical switches.
