Microchip Technology's (NASDAQ: MCHP) MGC3030 3D gesture controller features simplified user-interface options focused on gesture detection, which enables one-step design-in of 3D gesture recognition in consumer and embedded devices. Housed in an easy-to-manufacture SSOP28 package, the MGC3030 is housed in an SSOP28 package and is designed to expand expands the use of 3D gesture control features to high-volume, cost-sensitive applications such as toys, audio, and lighting. The gesture-detection integration of the MGC3030 is also achieved through Microchip's AUREA graphical user interface (GUI) and easily configurable general purpose IO ports that allows for host MCU/processor-free usage.

The MGC3030's on-chip 32-bit digital signal processor executes real-time gesture processing which eliminates the need for external cameras or controllers for host processing, and allowing for faster and more natural user interaction with devices. The MGC3030 also uses Microchip Technology's GestIC family development tools like the Colibri Gesture Suite, which is an on-chip software library of sophisticated yet easy-to-use gesture features. Intuitive and natural movements of the human hand are recognized, making the operation of a device functional, intuitive and fun. Without the need to touch the device, features such as flick gestures, the air wheel, or the proximity detection perform commands such as changing audio tracks, adjusting volume control or backlighting, and many others. All gestures are processed on-chip, allowing manufacturers to realize powerful user interfaces with low development effort.
