2.3 MSP CapTIvate PCB Design Guidelines for Proximity Sensors


Date: August 30, 2016

A good capacitive sensor design can improve a product's HMI (human machine interface) performance and robustness.  A properly designed proximity sensor can be used to detect a finger or hand approaching from some distance away.  Using a proximity sensor to wake up a product from sleep or illuminating keys or buttons in a dark environment are typical uses of a proximity sensor.
