Last Updated: 
Mar 02, 2021

AN2397 shows how to monitor data from any Cypress CapSense® controller using the I2C or UART interface. With the tools described in this application note, you can view and log real-time sensor data for CapSense tuning and debugging.


During the CapSense design process, you will need to monitor CapSense sensor data, such as raw count, baseline, and difference count, for tuning and debugging.

This document helps you to select the proper tool for viewing and logging CapSense sensor data. The two supported communication interfaces are I2C and UART. You should be familiar with CapSense sensing technology before you read this document. If you would like more information about general CapSense theory and operation, see Getting Started with CapSense.
