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.
