Silicon Labs' plug and play HID USB to IR reference design demonstrates the ease of use and versatility of the CP2112 USB bridge and Si1143 proximity sensor devices. The HID USB to IR reference design responds to pre-defined touchless swipe gestures (left, right, up and down) using the Si1143 proximity and ambient light sensor
. The CP2112 HID USB to SMBus/I2C bridge
handles the USB communication required for configuring the sensor and transferring the measured data for gesture recognition. Only minimal components are required. The user interaction with the board is displayed using an application on your PC.
