Sensors & Sensing


The Azoteq ProxSense® capacitive controllers are the most sensitive and robust proximity and touch controllers available today.

  • ProxSense® unique technical features:
    • 1000 x more sensitive than competition (allows proximity)
    • Ultra low power consumption (down to sub 2µA)
    • RF Immunity
    • Water Immunity
    • Touch on Metal options
    • RF noise detection
    • Automatic Tuning Implementation
    • AC Noise filtering
    • On-chip regulator
    • Integration of external componentsr
    • Lowest system cost



Azoteq's ProxFusion™ sensor family builds on more than a decade of capacitive sensor experience to integrate more than 6 different sensor technologies into a single IC:

  • Capacitive
  • Inductive
  • Hall-effect switch
  • Hall rotation sensor
  • IR
  • Support for PIR (external component)
  • Ambient light sensors
  • All combined into single package
  • The single package, multi-sensor approach ensures:
    • Smaller BOM
    • Lower cost
    • Lower power consumption
    • Water Immunity
    • Higher reliability
    • Less overhead on the host MCU
