Capacitance sensingEMC design considerations for PSoC CapSense apps

Posted: 10 Jun 2010 ?? ?Print Version ?Bookmark and Share

Keywords:PSoC CapSense? capacitance sensing? EMC design considerations?

Every electronic device must comply with specific limits for emitted energy and susceptibility to external upsets. These limits are specified by the FCC in the United States and by similar regulatory bodies in other countries. The regulations help ensure that electronic devices do not interfere with each other, so that your computer does not interfere with your TV, or worse, a hospital X-ray machine or ventilator does not corrupt the operation of a critical medical monitor.

Designing capacitive touch sense systems with PSoC CapSense for compliance with EMC standards result in easier qualification of new designs and more robust, low cost system design. This application note illustrates examples with test results demonstrating compliance.
