World’s Lowest Power
Capacitive Sensors with
Auto-Calibration
WORLD’S LOWEST POWER CAPACITIVE
SENSORS WITH AUTO-CALIBRATION

NXP is a leader in low power capacitance touch sensors, which work based on the fact that the human body can serve as one of the capacitive plates in parallel to the second plate, connected to the input of the NXP capacitive sensor device.

ADJUSTS TO THE ENVIRONMENT

Thanks to a patented auto-calibration technology, the capacitive sensors can detect changes in capacitance and continually adjust to the environment. Things such as dirt, humidity, freezing temperatures or damage to the electrode do not affect the device function.

KEY FEATURES

The widespread popularity of smartphones and tablets that use touchscreens as their human interface is evidence that people prefer simpler, more intuitive ways to control their electronics.

A WIDE RANGE OF USES

By enabling human interfaces that can be controlled by proximity or touch, capacitive sensors have the ability to transform the way we interact with electronic systems. Until now, a limiting factor has been reliability, since environmental factors such as humidity, dirt, freezing temperatures, and changes in the moving object can have a negative impact on sensitivity and responsiveness. The rise of touch sensors in modern electronics has become a worldwide phenomenon, and with NXP’s low power capacitive sensors it’s never been easier to create the future.
