CE95289 - CapSense Proximity with PSoC 4

Last Updated: 
Jul 28, 2016

For PSoC 4000 devices only, this project demonstrates a CapSense based proximity sensing design to control brightness of a LED. It will help user learn how to design a proximity sensor in their design using a PSoC 4 (4000 family) device and see how an approaching hand controls the intensity of a LED. It will employ the CapSense auto tuning ability, SmartSense®, to tune the proximity sensor of any wire/trace length. The project will also help user understand and design a simple Sleep-scan routine using the proximity sensor where the device will enter a periodic scan mode at a configurable rate and sleep once the sensor scan is complete to save power.
