Hardware Sensor Configuration

Sensor Configuration Overview

The sensor configuration configures the Capacitive Voltage Divider (CVD) waveform which is used to acquire the relative capacitance value of the sensor. For more information about the CVD acquisition method, see Application Note AN1478 mTouch Sensing Solution Acquisition Methods Capacitive Voltage Divider.

Common Sensor Configuration

There is a common configuration section to setup all the sensors, as shown below:


Individual Sensor Configuration

Each sensor has its own configuration section to set up the sensor name, Pre-charge, Acquisition time and oversampling value. The common configuration is assigned to each sensor by default. If the sensor has different physical conditions (parasitic capacitance, size of the sensor, etc..), you can enable the individual configuration.
