Technical Paper / Application Note

0 0
More InfoLess Info

This application note is intended for hardware and firmware design engineers that need to accurately detect small capacitance values. It shows how to use a PICmicro microcontroller and minimal external circuitry to detect small capacitances. The design is based on an operational amplifier (op amp) integrator. A capacitive humidity sensor is used to illustrate this type of application, and alternatives and modifications to the design are briefly discussed.
