PICOCAP - The most flexible solution in direct Capacitance-to-Digital Conversion
The patended PICOCAP measuring principle shows a versatile approach to capacitance measurement.
The input capacitance can range between a few fF up to hundreds of nF - there is practically no limit for the capacitor value. This provides the highest level of flexibility to the user and allows the same chip to be used in a broad range of sensors. PICOCAP also provides a powerful combination of performance and accuracy with the option for ultra-low current applications, using only a few µA.
