Capacitance-to-digital converter
31 January 2017, Analogue, Mixed Signal, LSI

ON Semiconductor introduced a new touch/proximity sensing solution that combines industry-leading performance, cost-effectiveness and convenience in a single chip. The LC717A30UJ high dynamic range capacitance-to-digital converter uses mutual capacitance to detect changes in capacitance down to femtofarad levels. Parasitic capacitance cancellation raises the detector sensitivity, while its built-in noise rejection mechanism combats the effects of electromagnetic interference. The eight capacitance-sensing input channels make the LC717A30UJ highly optimised for use in systems where an array of switches is required. Both I²C and SPI interfaces are selectable based on the system application needs.
