Touch can be detected using any of the six individual capacitive touch sensors on the back of the Wireling. With detectability all along the back of the board, sliding motions can be interpreted to add a variety of inputs to your next tiny project!

This Wireling features the ATtiny841, a high performance, low-power AVR 8-bit controller that comes with preloaded firmware to perform measurements through I²C.

      Works perfectly with Arduino

      Data is precise with locations 0-100. Works perfectly with Arduino IDE.


      The arduino library is not update to the new standards. So impossible to import it

      simple and cheap solution

      I ordered this slider, because in 1st instance I wouldn't design a slider pcb by myself. This was very well prices so I ordered these. I had to use them on an STM32 and I relaised later it was more or less supported for arduino only, but beacuse the libs are shared and open source I was pretty easy to make it work on an stm32. And Tiny circuits developers gave me very good and friendly support.
      unfortunately I forgot to order the wireling breakout header board and cables so I had to order twice, but that was my own mistake.
