Sensor Interfaces

Sensor interface ICs enable a system to read out information from the input signal generated by complex sensors, providing a suitable output signal that is easy for a host system to display or process. ScioSense sensor interfaces offer high accuracy, precision and sensitivity even when operating in harsh environments.

PICOCAP Capacitive Sensing

PICOCAP is a Capacitance-to-Digital Converter (CDC) which uses the patented PICOCAP measuring principle to interface to a broad range of capacitive sensors. The input capacitance can range between a femtoFarad and hundreds of nanoFarads, which means that there is almost no limit to the size of capacitor. The multi-channel CDC provides a high degree of flexibility with respect to accuracy, speed and operating current. A powerful integrated CPU enables on-chip linearization and temperature measurement and compensation.

PICOSTRAIN Resistive Sensing

The Resistance-to-Digital Converters (RDCs), based on the pure digital PICOSTRAIN measuring principle, combine very high precision with very low power consumption. Featuring an on-chip CPU, the PICOSTRAIN devices enhance the performance of resistive pressure sensors, force sensors, weighing scales and many other applications.
