We are excited to share with you the latest
news about our recently launched capacitive sensor AS8579.
We will introduce you to its many
application areas – hands-on detection, presence and fluid-level sensing.
driving is rapidly becoming the megatrend in the Automotive industry. Besides
comfort, the main motivation of driver assistance systems is a safer driving
drivers’ hands on the steering wheel is one of many necessary assistance
systems, that are already part of regulations like UN/ECE R79.
ams is providing a highly-reliable
capacitive sensor solution for hands-on detection.
The I&Q demodulation based capacitive
sensor separates the measured capacitance into the parasitic resistive and capacitive
part. Therefore the sensor is ideal for detecting human presence or interaction
as well as sensing different liquid and fluid levels.
