The company's IP portfolio is unmatched, including true, single-layer sensor solutions for dramatically reduced touchscreen costs and self and mutual capacitance sensing on the same chip that enables advanced features such as waterproofing, proximity sensing, support for 1-mm stylus, and hover.
While mutual capacitance touch sensing measures capacitance between two electrodes, self capacitance touch sensing measures capacitance of single electrode to ground, utilizing the field generated from the user to induce minute changes within the sensors field.
The notions of self and mutual electric conductance and the self and the mutual capacitance are formulated for the magnetic contours.
Cvp and Cvn are respectively capacitance of vias on the non-inverting and inverting lines, and Cm represents mutual capacitance.
It is more convenient to design the filter using the concept of even- and odd-mode impedances rather than self and mutual capacitance per unit length.
The development kit also includes sensor boards for evaluating self-capacitance, mutual capacitance, gesture and proximity sensing.
It arises only from capacitive and inductive coupling, which we usually model with mutual capacitance and mutual inductance.
The coupling coefficient between resonators may be determined by measurements of symmetrical-coupled resonators as a function of the slot width or via analysis of the self and mutual capacitance using an EM simulator.
These features are enabled by Cypress's unique, patent-pending ability to provide both self and mutual capacitance sensing on the same chip.
