Rei Vilo has put up a detailed project on Hackster.io on using TI’s new capacitive touch development kit. The kit comes with a MSP430FR2633 microcontroller that is the primary interface to the capacitive buttons. A CapTIvate Design Center GUI allows you to generate code for the MSP430FR2633. The MSP432 Launchpad in this project talks to the FR2633 via I2C.

Code for the project uses Energia, a popular, beginner friendly tool to program TI’s microcontrollers.
