Goodbye Switch Bounce

LogiSwitch was founded by Mike Pelkey, whose experience goes all the way back to the dawn of the microprocessor. In fact, Mike was the lead engineer for the first microprocessor-based product in the numerical control industry of the day -- a Z-axis controller called the Micro-Z.

Mike also developed the world’s first networked cash register in the mid-1970s, and he founded Macrotech International Corporation, which was a major manufacturer of board-level computer products in the late-1970s and early-1980s.

Throughout more than 40 years of designing digital systems, Mike -- like almost every other hardware designer engineer on the planet -- was plagued by the switch bounce problem. Having employed every version of traditional hardware-based and software-based switch bounce mitigation techniques (see our 
Switch Bounce/Debounce Tutorial), Mike decided that there had to be a better way.

The result of Mike's cogitations and ruminations was the LogiSwitch concept. Boasting adaptive bounce detection algorithms and a unique 1-wire handshaking protocol (see 
LS100 Series Debouncer ICs), low-cost LogiSwitch ICs reflect the state-of-the-art in switch bounce mitigation technology.
