Charged EVs | Microchip introduces touch controllers for EV chargers

Microchip Technology, which provides connected and secure embedded control systems, has launched the MXT2952TD 2.0 range of secure touchscreen controllers for EV charger payment terminals.

The maXTouch controllers are designed with embedded firmware to help EV charger designers protect their payment architectures by encrypting touch data and cryptographically authenticating software updates to minimize risk and meet compliance standards for Payment Card Industry (PCI) certification.

The 2952TD 2.0 is specifically optimized for 20-inch screen sizes. Its sister model, the MXT1664TD, is available for 15.6-inch screens.

“The maXTouch 2952TD 2.0 family provides EV charger designers with a cost-effective, secure design architecture for implementing credit card payments with PIN entry on their touchscreens,” said Patrick Johnson, SVP overseeing Microchip’s Human-Machine Interface division. “Combined with rugged, outdoor HMI touchscreen technology, the new addition offers our customers secure designs and the touch performance necessary for outdoor applications.”
