A2.4 - Capacitive Sensors from Low Cost to High Resolution on Printed Circuit Boards

A. Bülau, A. Schwenck, K.-P. Fritz & H. Kück
HSG-IMAT develops capacitive sensors based on printed circuit board technology (pcb) for application specific use. PCB based sensors have a few benefits compared to other sensor technologies, they are flexible in design, layouts can be easily and cost-efficiently adapted to new requirements and standard SMD processes can be used to assemble necessary components and circuits. They are adequate for small and medium-sized quantities and without any special process and they can be manufactured or modified...
