Issue #StatusSubjectModuleSubsystemWinCE OS

1.3 (Release date: 2021-10-27)
- WinCE 7 Updates: Installed until 2021M03
- WinCE 8 Updates: Installed until 2021M09
WC-2833Feature RequestImproved Resistive Touch Screen accuracyColibri iMX7WEC7, WEC2013

Description: Using Codec internal Sample Averaging and reading X, Y and Z(Pressure) samples in parallel instead of sequentially improves samples consistency and avoids false touch coordinates especially when releasing touch (pen-up).
Additionally there are new Registry entries that can be set:
"MinZValue" (Minimum Z value (Pressure) in order to consider a X and Y measurement valid. Setting this helps to get rid of wrong sampling values on very light touch pressure. A value of 10 works fine for 5-12 inch touch panels, for bigger panels lower values might be needed, default is 0
"Wait" (Wait settling time between measurements in us, default 512us, increase for bug touch screens with high capacitance)
"PenUpTimeout" (Timeout to generate PenUp Event when no valid measurements are returned, default is 25ms)
"DebugRawValues" (Set to 1 to enable useful debug output when trying to find the right values for MinZValue)
