TOUCH CONTROL PANEL ASSEMBLY
OUTLINE OF TOUCH CONTROL PANEL
The touch control section consists of the following units
as shown in the touch control panel circuit.
(1) Key Unit
(2) Control Unit
The principal functions of these units and the signals
communicated among them are explained below.
The key unit is composed of a matrix, signals P10 - P17
generated in the LSI are sent to the key unit.
When a key pad is touched, a signal is completed through
the key unit and passed back to the LSI through R24 - R27
to perform the function that was requested.
Control unit consists of LSI, power source circuit, synchro-
nizing signal circuit, ACL circuit, buzzer circuit, temperature
measurement circuit, absolute humidity sensor circuit and
This LSI controls the temperature measurement signal,
AH sensor signal, key strobe signal, relay driving signal
for oven function and indicator signal.
2) Power Source Circuit
This circuit generates the voltages necessary for the
control unit from the AC line voltage.
3) Synchronizing Signal Circuit
The power source synchronizing signal is available in
order to compose a basic standard time in the clock
circuit. It incorporates a very small error because it
works on commercial frequency.
4) ACL Circuit
A circuit to generate a signals which resetting the LSI to
the initial state when power is applied.
5) Buzzer Circuit
The buzzer is responds to signals from the LSI to emit
noticing sounds (key touch sound and completion sound).
6) Temperature Measurement Circuit : (OVEN
The temperature in the oven cavity is sensed by the
thermistor. The variation of resistance according to
sensed temperature is detected by the temperature
measurement circuit and the result applied to LSI. The
LSI uses this information to control the relay and display
7) Absolute Humidity Sensor Circuit
This circuit detects the humidity of a food which is being
cooked, to control its automatic cooking.
8) Door Sensing Switch
A switch to inform the LSI if the door is open or closed.
9) Relay Circuit
To drive the magnetron, heating element, fan motor,
convection motor, damper motor, turntable motor and
light the oven lamp.
10) Indicator Circuit
Indicator element is a Fluorescent Display.
Basically, a Fluorescent Display is triode having a
cathode, a grid and an anode. Usually, the cathode of a
Fluorescent Display is directly heated and the filament
serves as cathode.
The Fluorescent Display has 8-digits, 16-segments are
used for displaying figures.
DESCRIPTION OF LSI
The I/O signals of the LSI(IXA103DR) are detailed in the following table.

Vp voltage of power source circuit input.
3 AVSS IN Power source voltage: -5V.
VC voltage of power source circuit input.
4 VREF IN Reference voltage input terminal.
A reference voltage applied to the A/D converter in the LSI. Connected to GND.(0V)
