MagSense Inductive-Sensing Coil Breakout Board

The CY8CKIT-148-COIL Inductive-Sensing Coil Breakout board is designed as an easy-to-use reference design platform. The Inductive Sensing Coil Breakout board is purpose-built to be compatible with the CY8CKIT-148 PSoC 4700S Inductive Sensing Evaluation Kit, where MagSense Inductive Sensing with various coils can be evaluated.



CY8CKIT-148 PSoC® 4700S Evaluation Kit and CY8CKIT-148-COIL Breakout Board

The Inductive Sensing Coil Breakout board features 16 total inductive sensing coils which demonstrate different performance characteristics. The kit supports the following sensor features:

  • Proximity and touch detection using a single sensor
  • Rotation angle detection with a rotary encoder
  • Linear position encoding with two 100x8 linear encoder coils
  • Horizontal gesture detection with a six-segment sensor array

This kit also includes three metal targets which may be broken away from the kit board and used with any of the sensors on the kit. A fourth metal target is included which works with the rotary encoder sensor.
