Abstract

Off-the-shelf capacitance to digital converter (CDC) are widely available application specific integrated circuits (ASIC) to build capacitive sensors. For capacitive measurement systems with an increased number of channels, the application of these CDCs is often limited due to their measurement rate. In this paper we propose a parallelized multi-channel measurement system based on off-the-shelf capacitance to digital converters. We identify possible CDCs for the use in a parallel measurement system and demonstrate the usability of the approach by means of measurement results determined on a realized prototype.
