This is a design I'm working on for a forthcoming mod. It uses QT110 and QT118H touch control ics. I'm not posting the circuits for power on, cd eject, etc as they've been covered elsewhere. The goal is to have the controls behind an unmarked smoked plexi faceplate so that everything is invisible. When you get close to a switch it will illuminate without triggering the switch. When you get closer or touch the faceplate the switch will activate. This will be accomplished by using two touch sensitive switches, one with higher sensitivity than the other. The higher sensitivity switch will trigger the LED illumination of the switch, the lower sensitivity switch will trigger whatever the function is. The two circuits that haven't been covered in detail elsewhere: This first circuit handles switch illumination on proximity: This circuit will be used to switch on and off a bunch of LEDs wired in parallel used for illumination in the case: I'm using the QT118H part instead of the QT110H because noplace seems to have the QT110H. I'm an electronics noob, so let me know what you think and if you see any problems with the circuits. My biggest question is if the multiple switches will interfere with each other. Thoughts?
