CircuitPython driver for common low-cost FocalTech capacitive touch chips. Currently supports FT6206 & FT6236
This driver depends on:
Please ensure all dependencies are available on the CircuitPython filesystem. This is easily achieved by downloading the Adafruit library and driver bundle.
Installing from PyPI¶
On supported GNU/Linux systems like the Raspberry Pi, you can install the driver locally from PyPI. To install for current user:
pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-focaltouch
To install system-wide (this may be required in some cases):
sudo pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-focaltouch
To install in a virtual environment in your current project:
mkdir project-name && cd project-name python3 -m venv .env source .env/bin/activate pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-focaltouch
import time import board import busio import adafruit_focaltouch # Create library object (named "ft") using a Bus I2C port i2c = busio.I2C(board.SCL, board.SDA) ft = adafruit_focaltouch.Adafruit_FocalTouch(i2c, debug=False) while True: # if the screen is being touched print the touches if ft.touched: print(ft.touches) else: print('no touch') time.sleep(.15)
