The design and realization of capacitive measurement systems requires a variety of prior knowledge of the system, to achieve the intended performance. Electrical capacitance tomography (ECT) is a high end application of capacitive sensing.The required electronics is usually tailored to specific application constraints. To compare suitable circuit structures, a holistic design framework is required considering all components and their mutual interactions to derive appropriate figures of merit. We present an analysis framework and exemplary compare two different ECT circuit structures with respect to their sensitivity. The framework incorporates real world sensor conditions, for the application of the system.
