This is a simple touch sensor brick, it used TTP223 touch detector IC, you can use this brick to replace the traditional physical push button and add some cool elements to your project.
This sensor outputs a digital 5v signal and is plug-n-play compatible with the Electronic Brick system.
Yes! We can build electronics projects just as easy as piling bricks. The Arduino/Freeduino movement has made programming and physical computing easier than ever. The Electronic Brick system simplifies the process of interfacing sensors, inputs/outputs, and other various electronic components greatly!
By using Electronic Bricks, you can connect Arduino compatible boards easily with various digital, analog, and I2C/Uart interfaces. These breadboard-less, firm connections are compatible with an extensive list of modules such as potentiometers, sensors, relays, servos, buttons, and much more! Just plug and play!
Each sensor or I/O module has a buckled 3 pin plug with VCC, GND and Output, which has a corresponding port on the sensor interface brick shield modules. Buckled brick cables are like cement for bricks, make the connections easier, secure, and more professional looking.
