Simplifying Real-World Design!
LogiSwitch was founded in 2016 by Mike Pelkey, a serial inventor and entrepreneur who has a long engineering career in industrial automation.
LogiSwitch’s NoBounce™ line of ICs and switches is a result of Mike’s 40+ year career in electronic design engineering where he developed switch bounce solutions for automation applications.
The VisiShield™ line of Arduino prototype extender boards and peripherals was driven by Mike’s experience with Arduino. He knew that there was a more efficient way to prototype.
With built-in NoBounce technology, these switches guarantee you a clean, bounce and noise free input to your system.

Mechanical switch technology has been around since the days of Thomas Edison. It was designed to prevent destructive contact arcing when a high-current circuit is broken. These switches are still fine for switching AC/DC current such as lighting, washers, dryers,...

“I designed and built two different switch and lamp panels that allowed our software developer to simulate solenoids and position sensors to test their code before any machine was built. LogiSwitch NoBounce technology allowed me to connect them directly to the microcontroller with no debouncing software or hardware required. Their toggle and momentary functions were both used.”

“I love the LogiSwitch LS19! Before I found it, I was using simple RC debounce (2 resistors, 1 cap per channel) plus software debounce. Your chip replaces 18 parts with 2 solder pads each. It reduces our customers’ soldering by over 50% and performs so much better. The LS19 IC is used to debounce the mechanical footswitches and encoders which are both notorious for being rather bouncy and generally don’t play well with microcontrollers without some kind of hardware debounce.”

“LogiSwitch worked with our engineering team to come up with an outstanding solution based on their NoBounce technology that met our design goals and quality standards. During our extensive lifecycle testing, we completed a series of tests culminating in a greater than 100,000 count lifecycle equivalence without a LogiSwitch board failure.”
