This article contains instruction updates due to changes in NXP's SDK and also on AWS website.   This demo will focus on the WIFI enablement and cloud connectivity through AWS by using MCUXpresso and an Amazon Alexa.   Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the world’s most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform, offering over 165 fully-featured services from data centers globally. Millions of customers —including the fastest-growing startups, largest enterprises, and leading government agencies—trust AWS to power their infrastructure, become more agile, and lower costs. The LPC5500 used for this demo is the LPCXpresso55S69 development board which provides the ideal platform for evaluation of and development with the LPC55S6x MCU based on the Arm® Cortex®-M33 architecture. The board includes a high performance onboard debug probe, audio subsystem and accelerometer, with several options for adding off-the-shelf add-on boards for networking, sensors, displays, and other interfaces. The Alexa Skills Kit is a collection of self-service APIs, tools, documentation, and code samples that makes it easier to start building Alexa skills. Skills are like apps for Alexa, enabling customers to perform everyday tasks or engage with your content naturally with voice.   Block Diagram List of Products LPCXpresso55S69 WiFi 10 CLICK   Alexa Echo Dot USB A-to-Micro USB cable Step by Step Guides First, we need to create an account AWS and generate the “thing” that will be linked to the platform, this information can be followed step-by-step on this manual. Import AWS remote control WiFi Demo from the SDK Builder Select the LPCXpresso Board, click on the "Add software component" button, then select "Select All". Download the SDK Open MCU Xpresso and Import SDK examples, and then select the LPCXpresso 55 board and import into the aws_exaples find the aws_remote_control_wifi and also click on the UART for debugging. On the project find the amazon-freertos example, then demos and open the aws_clientcredential.h and change: The AWS IoT broker endpoint (Under thing settings “Interact” section) Write the “Things Name” And WiFi credentials. Replace the aws_clientcredential_keys.h with the one generated by the certification configuration tool from AWS, You can drag and drop it into the folder and then click overwrite.

电容式感应触摸按键可以穿透绝缘材料外壳,准确无误地侦测到手指的有效触摸。并保证了产品的灵敏度、稳定性、可靠性等不会因环境条件的改变或长期使用而发生变化,并具有防水和强抗干扰能力,超强防护,超强适应温度范围 电容式触摸按键控制芯片通常广泛适用于遥控器、灯具调光、各类开关以及车载、小家电和家用电器控制界面等应用中。芯片内部集成高分辨率触摸检测模块和专用信号处理电路,以保证芯片对环境变化具有灵敏的自动识别和跟踪功能。芯片还必须满足用户在复杂应用中对稳定性、灵敏度、功耗、响应速度、防水、带水操作、抗震动、抗电磁干扰等方面的高体验要求。本文将介绍一套基于NXP KE16Z64的轻量级TSI算法。 基于KE1XZ64平台的TSI轻量级算法: KE1XZ64继承了KE family的高可靠抗干扰性,并提供了更小的引脚封装尺寸,让客户硬件设计更加便利。其内部集成了改进版的TSI模块,性能更加稳定可靠,该模块支持自耦和互耦两种方式:自耦模式下最多可支持25个按键,互耦模式最多可支持36个按键,因此能够覆盖当前市场上绝大部分的触摸应用场景。 NXP官方的NT LIB软件虽然功能完善,但由于代码量大且程序架构复杂等原因,部分客户不愿意选用。所以该市场对于轻量级应用代码还是有需求的。 此参考设计展示了TSI轻量级算法的具体实现,按照配置模式分为两个对应的参考例程:自耦模式为12个按键的功能实现,硬件基于KE16 PCB,主要适用于按键所需数目少的应用场景;互耦模式为36个按键的功能实现,硬件基于RT-TSI-KE16,主要适用于按键所需数目多的应用场景。该算法精简可靠,十分易于移植,使客户可以很快地上手。并且可以结合使用NXP的GUI监测软件FreeMaster,方便中后期的灵敏度调试及问题追踪。 此套算法在实验室通过了IEC61000-4-6注入电流可靠性测试。 参考代码及说明文档请详见附件压缩包。
