The job will be to design, build and populate, write test code in C then DHL a double sided PCB for a prototype that has a PIC microcontroller, 14 etched capacitive buttons and an RF transceiver IC (CR95HF) with an etched [url removed, login to view] antenna.
The main reason I am doing this prototype is to test the possibility/problems of having the etched [url removed, login to view] RF antenna in between the capacitive buttons (as shown in the sketch below). Before you start designing please do a small cost benefit analysis (a few sentences only) of PIC’s mTouch vs other methods of implementing capacitive buttons in terms of implementation cost & component count.
I would prefer if the schematic/PCB capture was in either Altium or Eagle, the code however must be in C and programmed preferably using PICKIT 3. If you do not have Altium, Eagle or PICKIT 3 please let me know when you quote so I can see if I can accept the different software package/programmer
DO NOT include the cost of buying the components or shipping the PCBs in your quote , I will pay you separately for that as you do not know the cost now.
PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED PROJECT BRIEF FOR MORE INFO BEFORE QUOTING!
Many Thanks for reading.
