Designing Capacitive Sensing Interfaces for Home Appliances
The end of the switch as we know it?
Significant improvements in sensing algorithms and control circuitry have expanded the suite of applications in which capacitive sensing technology can be implemented. Designers are seeing the value of capacitive sensing as a mechanical button and membrane switch replacement as well as discovering new, exciting applications such as touchscreens and proximity sensors.
