  • Proximity Capacitor Model C = the capacitance in farads (F) A = the area of the plates in square meters (m2) d = the distance between the plates in meters (m) k = the dielectric constant of the material separating the plates ε 0= is the permittivity of free space (8.85 x 10-12 F/m)
  • Capacitive Sensing
    • E-Field devices produce a voltage inversely proportional to the change in electrode capacitance
    • E-Field device has no memory or intelligence inside
    • Capacitive sensors respond to a change in physical stimulus
    • Used in many areas of automotive, industrial and consumer
    • Most popular application today is a capacitive touch sensing
    • Enables the elimination of mechanical buttons and sliders
    • Provide immunity to mechanical wear and tear
    • Gives greater flexibility for product designers
    • Reduction of BOM costs
