This Illuminated Capacitive Switch Module feature an innovative method of combining the benefits of capacitive switching with colour back lighting. The backlit switching solution allows makers to prototype and evaluate HMI designs without the need to develop custom capacitive sensors and back lighting.
This switch module is a toggle output type. Upon power up, the module will monitor the capacitive pad for touch. When touch (e.g. from a finger) is detected the backlit will alternate turning on and the output pin will go high or low, respectively. No microcontroller is required here - just power it with 2.7 to 6VDC and touch the capacitive pad to activate the switch.
The module can source up to 500mA at 3.3V. Comes with 0.1" header so you can plug it directly into a breadboard.
