About This Video
Capacitive sensing devices are rapidly proliferating in consumer, computing, industrial, and automotive industries. They are widely used in electronic products in proximity detection mode to alert the equipment of a user's presence in the vicinity or in the touch detection mode to replace mechanical switches, key pads, tuning knobs, and mechanical sliders. The performance of a capacitive sensing device in an end-equipment is as important as the layout design of the system. This session will explore different design considerations that a system designer should be acquainted with before beginning any design with a capacitive sensor.
