Minimising energy consumption in capacitive sensing applications

This whitepaper looks at a number of capacitive sensing applications to understand how they operate and the benefits they offer over alternative solutions.

It then goes on to consider how concerns regarding energy consumption can be mitigated using a microcontroller that can remain in an ultra low power, deep- sleep mode while still being able to detect and respond to sensor inputs quickly and reliably.
